EDUC 215 Resilience Skills for College and Beyond
The class will be particularly helpful to get first year and transfer students started out with tips and tools to make the most out of their time at UW! Students preparing for graduation also find this class particularly helpful as they begin their transition to their next stage of life.
In EDUC 215, 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 90-minute lectures on Monday mornings with a one hour quiz section on Fridays for small group activities. A second lecture section was also recently opened on Wednesdays from 3:30-5pm, still with Friday quiz sections. 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!
