Becoming a Resilient Person – The Science of Stress Management | UWx on edX | Course About Video


CLAY COOK: Hi, my name is Clay Cook. And I’m an assistant professor
in the College of Education at the University of Washington. And this course is Becoming
a Resilient Person. This course is all about giving you
permission to take care of yourself first. Most of us haven’t been
afforded the opportunity to learn how to effectively
manage stress in life, yet we all experience it. It’s unavoidable. And it’s a universal aspect
of being a human being. The issue is that we know
chronic stress produces a wear and tear on our minds,
body, and behavior. So if we don’t have the
skills to manage stress, that it actually can produce
negative impact on our well-being. The other side is we’ve
never had the opportunity to learn how to optimize our well-being. How do you spend more
time in a happy state? How do you even feel more
fulfilled about your life? And how do you do what
matters most despite being faced with challenging, difficult,
and uncertain situations? So this course is about learning
the resilience skills that combine to enable you to
survive and thrive in life. I really welcome you to jump
on board with me in this course and learn how to become
a resilient person.
