‘Growing Resilient:’ stress management for personal and professional development

The landscape of ACC is changing at a rapid pace. There are more campuses and new initiatives, and not always more time or resources to help. This can create stress that impacts overall health, well-being, and satisfaction with work and life. Learn how to increase your resiliency for a more productive work life and a happier personal life by attending “Growing Resilient.” 

The three-part series led by psychologist Dr. Kavita Murthy will be from noon to 1 p.m. on Wednesdays in April at Highland Business Center. Sessions also will be livestreamed. Employees who attend all three sessions or participate via livestream can receive professional development credit.  Sessions are:

  •  April 5: The Practice of Resiliency – Learn how stress can impact personal and professional performance, and develop skills and strategies to become stronger, more productive, and happier.
  • April 12: The Practice of Mindfulness – Developing emotional intelligence, flow, and grit.
  • April 19: The Practice of Optimism – Developing a growth mindset and a positive narrative.

Participants are invited to bring their lunch. A light snack and water will be provided.
