UNC NRP Nov 2021 Education Session: Languishing vs Flourishing

November 22, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Languishing vs Flourishing: A Compassionate Community Dialogue About Personal Well-Being

In this interactive session, well-being scholar/practitioner Dr. Suzie Carmack of George Mason University’s Center for the Advancement of Well-Being will facilitate a knowledge sharing session on realistic work/life well-being solutions — with a particular focus on sharing the science of compassion and the quadratic model of well-being (Eisel, 2020).

In the first half of the session, Dr. Carmack will share a high-level summary of the latest compassion research, and will then facilitate a discussion in which participants compassionately explore their current well-being status along the languishing-flourishing continuum. Then, Dr. Carmack will coach participants through the process of actively taking an evidence-informed approach to creating a personal action plan based on their current vs. desired state of well-being. Participants will leave the session having had the opportunity to share and receive support for their well-being, and having practiced several well-being micro-interventions (practices). Participants will also receive access to Dr. Carmack’s follow-up resources for continued well-being that can be used for personal use and/or shared with their teams.

-Understand the mental health continuum of languishing-flourishing and struggle-surrender
-Experience the support of a board-certified health and wellness coach in self-identifying current well-being status and setting of SMART goals
-Evaluate one’s own personal and current state of languishing vs. flourishing and struggle vs. surrender
