Leadership Lab – Happy & Healthy Humans: Wellness & Resilience (Quick Dip!)
January 9 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Coping with the rigor of the engineering curriculum, navigating complex university systems, and adapting to a new environment can be exhausting! This session on self-care explores what it means to feel good and function well as an engineering student. Drawing on recent evidence from the study of psychology, you’ll be introduced to a cluster of activities that promote resiliency and prevent burn-out, so you can be at your best.
This session will be delivered in partnership with Dr. Diana Brecher from Ryerson Wellness
Dr. Brecher is a clinical psychologist who has been working at the counselling centre since 1991. She was the clinical director from 1994 – 2011. She is also adjunct faculty in the Ryerson Psychology Department, teaching graduate-level courses in CBT and clinical supervision. Diana’s long term goal is to infuse Ryerson’s programming, services and curriculum with principles of resilience and flourishing and to help facilitate a cultural change within the university.
