Grieving and Growing Through
Loss, Hurts and Disappointments


Why do some individuals appear to be unaffected by change or loss while others seem unable to go on with their lives?  Are some individuals born with a resilience gene? Is there a test for resilience? What’s the difference between denial and resilience? If I’m not born with it, can resilience be learned? Where do I sign up?   


Imagine a grassy field with a boot print that slowly disappears over time. The field looks the same as it did before the boot print. This metaphor illustrates the popular definition of “resilience” as the ability of a strained body to return to its original shape after it has been pulled, stretched, pressed, bent, etc.  However the American Psychological Association now defines resilience as a process. Could it be both a learned ability and a lifelong process?


Join us for an interactive workshop on resilience and discover how your response to change or loss can make a difference in the quality of your life, relationships and happiness.


Our presenter, Yolanda Gorick, MFT, will facilitate an interactive workshop and introduce the concept of resilience as the positive effect of mastering developmental tasks over the entire human life span.


Workshop participants will:  

·         Take a resilience quiz

·         Learn and apply 5 resilience skills

·         Learn 5 resilience factors
