Rob Ziegler from Skookum

Please join us on Wednesday, March 24 for our webinar, "Emotional Intelligence and Resilience in the time of COVID-19", with Rob Ziegler from Skookum.

Join us as we explore the basis of emotional intelligence and why the COVID-19 pandemic, from a physiological perspective, has been so challenging. We will also learn about the source of positive emotions (including resilience) and how each of us can actively develop these emotions for ourselves as well as those around us. The seminar will include a series of guided (and fun!) exercises to explore this content.

Learning Objectives (Info, tools, and skills attendees will receive):

  • Understanding of physiological basis of emotions
  • Understanding of the three nervous system states
