Many of us are experiencing unprecedented hardships as a result of this pandemic. Our short-term focus may be on getting through the day and the losses we are experiencing, but we would like to also turn our attention to the long-term possibility of growth as a result of adversity.
Join us for our second virtual Community Conversation event, as we explore the concept of Post Traumatic Growth and the steps we can take to set ourselves up for future growth.
Priming Ourselves for Personal Growth Through Adversity
A Virtual Community Conversation with MHA
Wednesday, May 27th at 7:00 pm
Post Traumatic Growth is a positive change experienced as a result of adversity. It involves shifts in how one thinks about and relates to the world, which leads to a process of change that is deeply meaningful. Learning from others' experiences, we can expect Post Traumatic Growth to be a possibility in our own lives.
Together, we'll discuss...
How can adversity can lead to personal growth?
How can we prime ourselves for growth at the same time we are experiencing hardship?
How can we build resilience in ourselves and in our children?
How can we embrace the paradoxes that ultimately help us make meaning out of trauma and thrive in the future?
Jenna Velez, LCSW, MHA's Vice-President of External Affairs, will be joined by Jeanette Fairhurst, MHA Board Member and Founder of Resilience Is Essential (RIsE), an employee interest group at Regeneron, and Ginger MacLeod, MHA Peer Specialist.
