The Roots of Resilience

Presenter: Stephen Poland, Ph.D.

Date: Oct. 10, 2020
Time:  9:00 - 11:00 a.m.

2 CE credits

The scientific study of resilience has progressed greatly from its beginning over forty years ago with the study of at-risk children explosed to adverse situations.  Researchers in the field of developmental psychology have contributed greatly to answering the question why some individuals do well, in spite of difficulty, while others struggle.

In this program we will review research showing that resilience is not an unusual quality of a few extraordinary individuals; it is "ordinary magic."  Given the right kind of support and resources, most people can bounce back from difficulty.  Research has identified many factors that contribute to resilience.  We know that resilience isn't just in us, it's around us; in our relationships with others, our families, and our communities.

Learning Objectives:
1. Describe two alternative conceptions of psychological resilience.
2. Summarize at least one important research study supporting the conclusion that resilience is a common quality of individuals.
3. List ten factors that contribute to resilience (including factors "within" and "outside" the individual).
4. Describe how cultural factors may influence resilience.
5. Identify how the concept of resilience fits with what you do as a therapist, and as a person.
