Resilient Gator

Resilience theory refers to the ideas surrounding how people are affected by and adapt to things like adversity, change, loss and risk. Demonstrating resilience includes working through emotional pain and suffering while experiencing stress, emotional upheaval and suffering.

Resilience. Although it may seem like these individuals are naturally gifted, it is not a unique phenomenon. The Resilient Gator Program is designed to inform on resilience theory and empower the campus community by providing strategies to build resilience.

The Resilient Gator program has two parts. The first focuses on defining resilience and providing data and examples to highlight its importance. The second part focuses on explaining strategies that can be used to build and grow the quality of resilience individually, why it is important to incorporate it into your life, and help you identify areas in your life that could be strengthened and improved by resilience skill-building.
