Road to Resilience Workshop

Because Adelphi University has transitioned to online learning for the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester, we are now offering Leadership Certificate Program workshops online via Zoom! Click the link below five minutes prior to the start of the workshop to join. Your screen and microphone will be muted and a chat feature for discussions will be available. Some workshops will be recorded and available for viewing after the scheduled event.

Students and emerging leaders who learn about resilience and utilize the skills taught in the resilience workshop are able to build their emotional fortitude and better cope with life’s inevitable challenges. This is a workshop that utilizes both didactic and experiential learning opportunities, through the use of lecture, video, PowerPoint and group process work. My original workshop has been presented to hundreds of students, faculty and staff at Adelphi University  

About the Presenter:

His roles have also included adjunct professor, clinical supervisor to other therapists, and consultant to tech companies, entrepreneurs, and athletes. In addition to counseling, Dr. Altman developed a customized program that helps clients develop resilience, focus, and emotional fortitude. He has lectured at preparatory schools, colleges and law schools throughout the New York metropolitan area.

Dr. Altman trained and received his Master’s degree at New York University Silver School of Social Work.
