WRK231H Building Life Resilience Through Meaning

[0–0, 0 cr.]

Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms — to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way. Viktor Frank. During your journey of living, you are not exempt from different kind of challenges. Being aware of this fact and being prepared to deal with it is resilience.  Meaning is a crucial element in fostering resilience. Without Meaning, your life would be so fragile. It is what allows you to deal with the Tragic Triad or what we call reality and to find optimism in challenging times and turn these challenges into triumphs.

During the workshop, you will be exploring:

  • The crucial role of Meaning in life and its relationship to resilience
  • The Tragic Triad and its elements
  • The Means of Meaning Discovery
  • Optimism in challenges
  • Practical exercises on fostering resilience through Meaning
