Think of someone you know who thrives in spite of adversity. This is the essence of resilience. A resilient person is able to bounce back from difficult or stressful experiences. This quality is much more common than we imagine. In our review of current scientific research identifying the factors in children, adolescents and adults that contribute to resilience, we'll ask if these factors are the same or if they differ with age. Looking beyond the individual to the family, community and society will help us identify sources of support for thriving under challenging conditions. We will then ask what can be done to foster resilience in ourselves and others. Join us as we share stories of resilience.
