Dealing with Uncertainty

Life is full of uncertainty, happenstance, and unexpected occurrences. At their best, these moments provide us with happy surprises. At their worst, they create ambiguity, discomfort, anxiety, sometimes even anger and frustration. In this session we will explore the Model of Uncertainty Navigation (Sweeny, 2012), and explore a variety of strategies and approaches you can use to create a personalize approach to dealing with uncertainty.
