About The Presentation

This last year has been full of unprecedented challenges that have changed the way we operate in the world. These challenges have pushed us to dig deep and learn how we can best take care of ourselves and our loved ones. The good news is that challenges can make us stronger. In this session we will talk about the risks and protective factors that surround us, how to build strong protective factors in ourselves and others, and strategies for making the most out of difficult situations.  While you cannot always change your circumstances, you can learn how to tap into your resilience and come out of this time stronger than before.
