This recorded webinar focuses on skills needed to manage adversities that occur as one prepares to resume work, school, or other life activities amid the ongoing pandemic. Sometimes, those facing adversities are expected to adopt resilience skills or “grit” to manage persisting obstacles, rather than to address systemic or structural obstacles underlying these adversities. So, both individual (micro) skills to manage ongoing obstacles, and communal (macro) skills are described to help address system and structural obstacles that impact the functioning within systems (such as the workplace). Participants examined how these strategies may be applicable to their local system of care components.
