The recording of the webinar will be available on CU at Home On demand, a week following the presentation.
Concordia psychology professor Erin Barker, PhD, will describe ways to buffer stress and promote emotional well-being in the face of challenging circumstances.
She will lead a COMPASS self-reflection exercise:
Coping Optimism Motivation Persistence Affect (emotion) Support Self
and present each of these as a psychological strength that you can draw on to manage stress and face challenges.
