Today’s topic is about Psychological Resliency and Wellness for Women. Speaker Dr. Kaitlyn Goldsmith, UBC Professor
Summary: Life is full of struggles that can be psychologically draining. Women are particularly likely to be caregivers and to put their needs on hold in order to care for others, which sometimes means neglecting their own well-being. Building psychological resiliency using evidence-based psychological strategies including cognitive flexibility, mindfulness, and self-compassion are key to cultivating strength and prioritizing personal wellness in women. These topics and more will be explored in this interactive presentation by Dr. Kaitlyn Goldsmith.
