“Well-being in Higher Education: Raising Literacy and Advancing the Conversation” is a series of free, virtual events taking place February 26 - March 1, 2024. Over 20 associations are collaborating with a goal to raise the literacy for well-being among higher education professionals and to advance conversation among colleagues on and across campuses.

This session will explore the concept of professional resiliency to student affairs practice, and demonstrate to participants how resiliency can be used in daily practice.  The presenter will begin with a personal narrative of resiliency as context for the session followed by a discussion of trauma.  Next, a model of resiliency development will be illustrated as well as the key characteristics of resilient practice and leadership.  The session will end with a discussion of positivity as well as key takeaways.  The information in this session is based both in personal practice as well as empirical research in the field of higher education.

Learning Outcomes

Participants will:

  • Understand the core concepts of trauma and its interplay with resilience building.
  • Apply a model of resilience development into their professional practice.
  • Learn the key concepts and constructs of resilience and resilient practice.
