How to Handle Rejection:

Developing Strategic Responses to Painful Events

Rejection and criticism can sometimes be useful, right? Here's how!

Academia and many other environments offer rich opportunities to receive criticism and rejection. Dean Osborne is an expert in receiving rejection and criticism during his almost thirty year scholarly career, having frequently received scathing (and sometimes constructive) criticism and rejection on everything from personal potential to teaching, scholarly potential, career path, and even personal style. This discussion will explore how to use these experiences as opportunities for personal and professional growth.
