Course Open/Close: Jul 30, 2020 - Jan 1, 2021

Perhaps you’re trying to adjust to working from home while hearing about neighbors, friends, and colleagues losing their jobs. Maybe you're doing your best to balance leading your company through difficult strategy decisions and caring for your children while schools are closed. Maybe you’re trying to finish your classes from home while worrying about graduation requirements and making housing payments on time. Or maybe you're feeling isolated, separated from friends and loved ones. This course was created to support all who are feeling the emotional strain of unprecedented and stressful situations. While the COVID-19 pandemic is the genesis for the course, the evidence-based concepts and skills that are illustrated here will promote the healthy emotional coping of anyone who is struggling with chronic stress. The course will be particularly useful for organizations that are concerned about the emotional health of their employees and want to support their teams virtually with stress management strategies. Taking the course in teams will have the added benefit of creating a common language and approach within organizations for addressing mental health challenges among their employees and constituents. Throughout the course, we strive to answer two essential questions: What is the science behind how we experience stressful situations? How can we build resilience while facing stressful situations?

Q&A with Faculty

Do you want to know more about how the skills you are learning can be applied to different situations? Is there a particular course module that you had questions about?

Throughout September Dr. Marques will be answering questions from learners in a series of videos. Questions submitted by course participants will be used to record four Q&A sessions that will be organized sequentially around the different topics and modules covered in the course.

Videos of the Q&A sessions will be posted the course site and will remain available for viewing until the course closes. Stay tuned for email alerts with more details about the schedule of these Q&A sessions. We look forward to receiving and responding to your questions!
