In this one-time class, students will learn 5 skills to help them approach, deal with, and overcome failure.

Class experience

Students will learn how to improve in five skills that will help them overcome failure: Assessing, Reframing, Adapting, Perseverance, and Optimism. Students will learn how to improve their ability to get through the toughest challenges by focusing on these skills.
I have a Masters of Arts, and completed courses in both undergraduate and graduate levels where I studied psychology, the effects of influence, cognitive processing errors/bias, how humans assess risk, how humans process trauma, and completed my Master's thesis with research on how education and community engagement can establish a positive trajectory in life, improve resilience and reduce negative influences. I have also completed several courses on how to train first responders and educators on methods for coping with trauma and emergency situations. I coached youth sports teams for 12 years at elementary, middle school and high school levels.

We use fictional examples of failure that may resemble similar individual experiences for students. Although this course is not intended to be therapeutic or offer therapy for personal experiences, it provides skills that the student can use in her or his personal life. The teacher will not ask students for details relating to their own personal experiences.
The techniques and strategies presented in this course are drawn from the following sources, research during the teacher's undergraduate and graduate studies, as well as from 12 years of personal experience by the teacher who worked directly with youth in capacities to increase resilience, coach mentality and contribute to overall character development:
