About the course
It’s not secret that we live in unprecedented times, yet the question remains how to best deal with current challenges. While developments like globalization and digitalization bear great benefits they can also create immense stress us at the same. In this course you’ll learn how to create an understanding of your own stressors, the potential and means to build resilience and how to successfully train resilience through meaning everyday life.
What you will learn in this course
This course takes an interdisciplinary approach based on neuroscience, psychology and sociology to answer the following questions:
• Module 1: What is stress and how does it affect our daily life?
• Module 2: What is the relationship between resilience and stress and how can we build resilience?
• Module 3: What role does meaning play in training resilience and how can we develop a stronger focus in everyday life?
• Practical training phase of three weeks (guided, but individual)
• Module 4: What impact does building resilience through meaning have on my life?
How this course is structured
This course is divided into four modules which are held online via Zoom. Each module will include theoretical input, practical group work to discuss ideas and thoughts as well as individual reflection exercises.
In between module three and four there is a practical training phase where students can apply what they have learned and test it in their everyday life (this will be guided with short daily impulses via email if wished for, but will be on an individual basis). The last module serves to reflect upon their personal experience and identify individual key take-aways.
