Movies captivate the imagination and can be a powerful tool for self-reflection and growth. We witness a variety of virtues and strengths enacted on-screen as characters struggle to adapt or overcome challenges in their journeys.
Using positive psychology, movies can accentuate our strengths, provoke new ways of seeing difficult situations, and inspire ongoing growth in our own life stories. In a time of physical distancing, we can use movies to help us feel more connected and inspired.
All movie fans with an interest in resilience are welcome to attend this webinar. This event is FREE for MacEwan students. Staff and faculty are encouraged to donate what they can in support of the MacEwan United Way Campaign.
If you are not a MacEwan student, staff or faculty member, please email email@example.com to register. Registrants will receive a Webex link on the day of the webinar.
