Resilience Psychology: A Strength-Based Approach to Trauma Recovery


Arielle Schwartz, PhD will present “Resilience Psychology: A Strength-Based Approach to Trauma Recovery” at this months Psychobabble event.

Resiliency is a topic that can often arise when working the trauma, PTSD, and EMDR. More than the flip-side of trauma, this presentation will focus on resilience and the ways in which we, as humans, have the capacity to survive and even thrive in the face of difficult life events. Dr. Schwartz will be discussing…

  • How awareness of the body’s habitual stress responses can support your clients (and you!) to be more informed and prepare to handle life’s ups and downs.
  • How our community and family environments can best build resilient children.
  • How research on people who have been resilient in the face of traumatic events can teach us important strategies to reduce harm on body and mind.
