Promoting mental health encourages the development of resilience. The reverse is also true: promoting resilience leads to better mental health.
As resilience involves being able to recover from difficulties or change—to function as well as before and then move forward–students who are resilient can effectively cope with, or adapt to, stress and challenging life situations.
Strengths-based resilience is designed to help students develop resilience, to equip them with knowledge, and then to use their strengths in difficult times.
Presenters: Dr. Tayyab Rashid is a licensed clinical psychologist at the Health & Wellness Centre, and an associate faculty in the graduate psychological clinical science program at the University of Toronto Scarborough (UTSC).
This webinar is a collaboration between the University of Toronto Scarborough and CICMH.
