Having a life purpose- what does this mean? Those who have a strong sense of purpose and direction in life are actually better at self-regulating and tend to be more resilient. Vic Strecher is going to help define life purpose by taking participants through these processes from historical and philosophical lenses. Goals of Vic’s session include: 

• Explore our purposes in life
• Understand the historical and philosophical conceptions of purpose
• Learn how our purpose helps us to thrive, grow, and drives greater resilience
• Build resiliency and emotional self-regulation skills
