Building Resilience

“In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.” – Albert Camus

We have all experienced some difficulties and/or challenges in our lives. Although these roadblocks can diminish our resolve they can also make us stronger.

Resilience is our ability to navigate, recover and adjust after experiencing setbacks. Not only can we manage these challenges, but also in time, we can learn from them and become stronger than before. Resilience is not a fixed-state. It is a skill set that can be developed with practice.

Explore the information on this site to learn how you can become more resilient.

For in-person support for coping with life’s challenges, we encourage students to visit the Adelphi Student Counseling Center.
