Ways to Bolster Resilience: Lessons Learned

6.00 CE Hours Available

In the aftermath of a year of traumatic and victimizing experiences in the U.S. including the loss of lives due to COVID and due to some 620 mass shootings, and the destruction resulting from natural disasters, individuals, families and communities need ways to bolster their resilience. This workshop will consider the lessons learned in attempts to bolster resilience across the entire life-span, from "high-risk“ children and their families through adolescents, adults and the elderly.

Dr. Meichenbaum will also consider how to bolster resilience in mental health workers. He will discuss specific evidence-based interventions focusing on the Core Tasks of Psychotherapy and on the trans-theoretical behavior change principles common to all forms of effective therapies. He will provide a detailed handout of TO DO TASKS that attendees can employ immediately.
