Growing Resilience Webinar Series

The ability to adapt to change and overcome adversities defines what is understood as resilience. In recent months, there have been a number of debilitating factors including the COVID-19 pandemic, changes in our economy, lost jobs, budget changes, civil unrest, and general uncertainty which requires both us as individuals as well as our communities to tap into that resilience. Research shows that cumulative experiences lead to greater risks for impacts on our long-term health and wellbeing. Considering the multitude of challenges that members in communities across the nation are facing, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Delaware and Orange Counties are joining together to offer a series of webinars for community members across the state.

The series launched with a focus on Growing Resilience Individually on Tuesday, October 8, and will continue with a session on Growing Resilience as a Community on Thursday, November 19. The final part of this series will be a virtual conference that focuses on Tools for Growing Resilience: in schools, health and human services, and the community at large. The final session will be held on Friday, December 11 where Scarlett Lewis, founder of the Choose Love Movement will deliver the keynote.

Webinar participants can expect to learn strategies that foster the ability to stay within their Resilient Zone, as well as strategies that support resilience as a community and there will be a special focus on schools, health care and human service providers, as well as sectors including faith-based communities, courts, law enforcement and the community at large.
