w/ Michael Ungar, PhD
Director, Resilience Research Center
Resilience is much more than an individual’s capacity to overcome adversity. It is also the result of how well their families, schools and communities work together to help vulnerable young people navigate their way to the resources they need for wellbeing, and whether those resources are made available in ways people experience as culturally and contextually meaningful. Dr. Michael Ungar will use many engaging examples from his clinical practice and research collaborations on six continents to explore the nature of resilience. His work challenges us to think about resilience as our capacity to be both rugged and resourced. In this fast-paced, story-filled presentation, Dr. Ungar will provide twelve practical strategies to build our capacity to cope under stress.
