Resilience is the capacity to adapt and thrive when experiencing adversity or distress. An individual’s level of resilience is influenced by several individuals (e.g., temperament), social (e.g., family connectedness), biological (e.g., genetics), and environmental-level (e.g., traumatic experiences) factors.

Designed for professionals, this program introduces attendees to the concept of resilience. It highlights how this capacity can be strengthened and the impact lower levels of resilience have on mood, behavior, cognition, physical health, and criminality. Relevant topics discussed during this program include gratitude, optimism, social isolation, positive psychology, grit, post-traumatic growth, co-occurring psychopathology, trauma, and toxic stress, to name a few. Empirically based research findings are highlighted throughout this program.
