Navigating Neurodiversity: Emotional Regulation
April 21 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
This event is part of our Navigating Neurodiversity workshop series with Dr. Jim Russell. This workshop series is open to all WashU students!
Emotion regulation is the heart of emotional resilience; thus, students experiencing higher levels of emotion dysregulation typically display lower adaptability. Because the ability to “bounce back” helps college students cope with everyday academic and personal life stresses in a healthy way, students who struggle with emotional dysregulation are more likely to develop depression and anxiety and turn to unhealthy coping mechanisms such as substance abuse and avoidance, as well as experience heightened test anxiety, lower self-confidence, the inability to persevere in the face of hardship, and more. Come away from this session with new tools and strategies for building resilience.
Friday, April 21, 1 to 2:30 p.m.
Simon Hall, Room 018
