THRIVE Wellness Coaching & Workshop

Resiliency can be defined in different ways. One definition that is easy to remember is: "The ability to become strong, healthy, or successful again after a negative experience." THRIVE at IC is a program offered by the Center for Health Promotion which is intended to help students increase their resiliency, and as a result, improve their overall wellbeing and personal success.

In the program, students have an opportunity to engage in various activities to learn about the THRIVE Resilience Pyramid and how different aspects of health and wellness interact to allow them to grow from mistakes, connect with others, and find their purpose. Students learn how to build their own resiliency to increase their ability to be successful in college and after graduation. This program focuses on exploring realistic strategies that participants identify for themselves, and learning about resources on and off campus that will help them succeed.

THRIVE is available as a one-on-one personal wellness coaching session in the Center for Health Promotion and as a group workshop.

In a private wellness coaching session, the student has an opportunity to discuss their concerns in a range of personal wellness areas such as nutrition, sleep, exercise, stress management, and substance use. They can set practical goals and identify strategies for change that they feel are most relevant. For more information, or to schedule a free and confidential wellness coaching session, email
