Course of Interest: Resilience Skills Class for Undergrads EDUC 200

Hello Advisers,

As students come in to plan for winter quarter registration, remember to recommend EDUC 200 Resilience Skills for College and Beyond.

The class will be particularly helpful for first year and/or transfer students to get started out with tips and tools to make the most out of their time at UW!

In EDUC 200, students learn skills to enhance their wellbeing in college and in their life in general. Particular focus is paid to skills that help students withstand common difficulties in life, like a disagreement with a loved one, tolerating doing work you don’t want to do, and managing negative emotions in a healthy way. Skills will include but will not be limited to mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness skills. Students will also learn about research underlying stress, resilience, and related skill areas.

This 5 credit class meets for lectures on Wednesday late afternoons with a one hour lab section on Fridays for small group activities. The class also provides I&S credits.

 

EDUC 200 Resilience Skills for College and Beyond allows students to work towards their best life while earning credit! Remember to recommend this class!

Take care,
