Treatment Approaches to Enhance Resilience
Resilience is “the ability to bounce back.” During my career I have been curious about what internal and external protective factors enhance resilience following trauma. Whether recovering from cancer, divorce, job loss, tours of duty, domestic violence, or the death of a loved one, we seek to understand and know what helps us to “bounce back.” We will explore this together and surface strategies that will enable us to help heal those struggling through their trauma.
- Understand research findings that outline the clinical/biological effects of trauma,
- Identify characteristics and traits associated with positive outcomes that enhance resilience,
- Apply best practices that facilitate resilience and improved mental health outcomes following trauma.
