Resilience LectureThe Winona State University CLASP Lecture Series will host “Resilience: A Lifelong Skill for Bouncing Back and Moving Forward” with Eunie Alsaker and Mick Lynch at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 18, in Stark Auditorium 103.

Like all systems and organizations, humans go through stressful and often difficult changes as they grow and develop. Resilience is the ability to rebound and incorporate positive change following adversity. It helps individuals, families, organizations and communities persist, and even thrive, amidst unforeseen disruptions and stress.

Alsaker, MSSW, LICSW, and Lynch, PsyD, LP, are counselors in the WSU Counseling and Wellness Center. They will look at how developing resiliency helps people endure in an unpredictable and ever-changing world. They will address resources to help a person deal with hardship and explore ways to nurture this strength to bring about positive and sustainable changes.
