• Scheduled so working professionals may attend

Objectives include literature critique, examination of personal resilience and protective factors, analysis of historical relationship of resilience and spirituality, experience and description of the principles of health realization, development of criteria and standards for assessing resilience in self and others, and synthesis of the understanding into professionally appropriate applications for each student's situation. Students from previous terms consistently report the class as "life-changing" and "meaningful." Many say, "It should be required of all students at the University." and "It was the best course I have ever taken at the University of Minnesota."
