Cultivating Community and Connection

Lecture no. 14 from the course: Building your Resilience: Finding Meaning in Adversity

Cultivating Community and Connection

Taught by Professor Molly Birkholm | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Health,Fitness & Nutrition Courses

Human beings are wired for connection to others; our initial cognitive development depends on physical touch, and our “mirror neurons” teach us how to be human based on our interactions with others. Learn how to develop quality connections with others, connections that will help you thrive and increase resilience. Your instructor shares the inspiring stories of two individuals who did just that.
