EAP Workshop - Building Resilience Workshop

The Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD) Employee Assistance Program (EAP), in partnership with the LACCD Joint Labor/Management Benefits Committee (JLMBC) and MHN, a Health Net Company, is presenting a "Building Resistance" workshop for college employees on Tuesday, January 22 from 12:30-1:30 p.m. in Administration & Career Advancement 2504.

Healthy, resilient people have stress-handy personalities and learn valuable lessons from challenging experiences. They rebound from major setbacks even stronger than before. Resilient individuals can change to a new way of working and living when an old way is no longer possible. 

This workshop discusses the different aspects of resilience, and provides strategies for developing and enhancing personal resilience. After the workshop, you should be able to: describe the characteristics of resilience, identify how to develop resilience, know how to resilient individuals turn challenges into opportunities, and understand the role of stress management in maintaining resilience. 

There will be raffle prizes, and light snacks provided. 

In addition, ACA 2504 will be open at 12 p.m. for individuals wishing to bring their brown bag lunch prior to the workshop.
