By Don Meichenbaum, PhD
“What do resilient individuals do”? What behaviors do they have and what behaviors do they not engage in? This advanced training explores the dynamic nature of resilience, in both children and adults, and how it relates to people in the world today. It will examine the implications for Psychotherapists, as a way to bolster resiliency. Dr. Meichenbaum stresses key concepts of resilience as they relate to interventions. Following a focused discussion of the evidence of resilience in traumatized adults, Dr. Meichenbaum will also consider the factors that contribute to post-traumatic growth and the implications for treatment. He sites specific examples of psychotherapeutic recommendations from his work he is presently conducting with returning soldiers and their families. This is an intermediate course intended for practicing clinicians.
