This talk addresses the long-term impact of trauma on our way of being in the world and defines resilience as the human capacity to grow through adversity. This approach defies the separation between individuals and the social world, showing how we can all contribute to each other’s resilience and well-being. You will learn strategies for cultivating resilience in three areas: stress management and self-care, the quality of connection with others, and the support from one’s environment.

Presented by the National Newcomer Navigation Network (N4)
