We all know that there are some circumstances through which we must “push through,” but when does such pushing become unhealthy? To put it another way: what does healthy resilience look like? This class will explore the relationship between healthy self-awareness and resilience, and will present research-based practices for building resilience for individuals and communities. Class meets live on Zoom Tuesday, Oct 25 and Wednesday, Oct 26, 7-8:30pm.
Having earned a BA in English from Roberts Wesleyan University, an MA in Linguistics from Syracuse University, a PhD in Linguistics from Cornell, and an MDiv from Northeastern Seminary, Dr. Letterman specializes in the developmental power of language, purpose, and embodied habits (such as mindfulness and other self-awareness developmental practices) as factors of human connection and collaborative problem-solving. Dr. Letterman strives to help individuals and organizations discover the link between theory and practice. She facilitates workshops designed to help individuals and teams better understand such pragmatic topics as: personal engagement and conflict styles; power and inclusion dynamics; mindfulness for change; and whole-person health and development trajectories. She supports individuals and teams in learning skills of listening and clear expression of values - skills that help people discover challenging contexts as invitations to significant human connection as well as personal and leadership development.Email
