Well-being is far from a luxury to address after working on basic needs; it is an effective, preventive treatment in its own right. This presentation will discuss new approaches to the work on well-being and resilience in people exposed to traumatic experiences.
By attending this presentation:
- Participants will gain knowledge about Anthropedia’s well-being model and its utility in public health initiatives.
- Participants will learn about the Temperament and Character Inventory and its use in predicting response to traumatic experiences.
- Participants will explore data on Anthropedia’s work in the St. Louis Community that shows the effectiveness of well-being and resilience interventions in the St. Louis area (e.g. Homeless populations).
