College of

Small Group Discussions to Strengthen Resilience in Aftermath of Tragic Events in Texas and Ohio

Many of us may be struggling to understand the recent mass shootings and why such a terrible thing would happen. We may not ever find satisfactory answers to these questions.

We know it’s typical to experience a variety of emotions following tragic events. These feelings can include shock, sorrow, numbness, fear, anger, disillusionment, and grief to name a few. You may feel that the world is a more dangerous place today than you did yesterday.

We have ways to strengthen our resilience — the ability to adapt well in the face of adversity — in the days and weeks ahead. One way is to talk about it.
