Featured Resources

The Strength-Based Resilience program, grounded in the tenets of Positive Psychology, includes 14 modules on topics such as cognitive flexibility, character strengths, empathy, positive relationships and meaning and purpose.

Tayyab Rashid, Ph.D., author of the Strength-Based Resilience program, is a licensed clinical psychologist and researcher at the Health & Wellness Centre, University of Toronto Scarborough (UTSC), Canada. Dr. Rashid’s interests include positive interventions toward personal and professional growth and engagement, resilience, the search for meaning and strategies for doing the right thing both individually and collectively.

The Narratives Project leads cohort programs to help students explore identity and find resilience in community. Dozens of “What is Your Story?” videos have emerged from these programs. Dr. Bacal also teaches a course called “Designing Your Path,” which helps students reflect on questions such as: What is your story? Where have you been and where are you going? What matters to you? What skills do you need to pursue what matters?

Jessica Bacal, Ed.D., is Director of Reflective and Integrative Practices and of The Narratives Project at Smith College. Dr. Bacal edited Mistakes I Made at Work: 25 Influential Women Reflect on What They Got Out of Getting It Wrong (2014) and The Rejection That Changed My Life: 25+ Powerful Women on Being Let Down, Turning It Around, and Burning It Up at Work (2021).

Dear ARC Friends and Colleagues,

All of us have been affected, personally and professionally, by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic as well as the heightened awareness and activism emerging in the US and around the world in response to incidents of racism and violence. These are times that call for extraordinary resilience on the part of our students, ourselves, our institutions, and our society.

The Academic Resilience Consortium stands with Black Lives Matter to oppose systemic racism, to grieve for victims of racial violence and police brutality, and to achieve justice and equity.

We send you courage and hope as we all navigate these waters, engage our resilience, and create new ways to care for ourselves and others.
