Course Description: Emotional resiliency has become a cutting-edge topic of research in the aftermath of disasters such as 9/11, Hurricane Katrina and the devastating Haitian earthquake. As with almost any type of behavior, resiliency can be learned to help people rebound quickly and more efficiently from any traumatic situation. Resiliency also incorporates recruiting outside resources for support. People who practice resiliency skills are better able to convert experiences of hardships into experiences of increased empowerment, inner strength, and personal meaning. This course defines emotional resilience and differentiates it from survival skills. It identifies many of the core qualities and attitudes of resiliency and explores specific goals and interventions that help to develop characteristics associated with resiliency. Mindfulness principles that promote resiliency will be discussed.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Define the concept of emotional resilience and distinguish it from survival skills.
  2. Identify five resilience characteristics, attitudes, habits, and skills for emotional resilience.
  3. Identify three mindfulness-based practices that can be implemented with clients to cultivate emotional resilience.
  4. List two ways in which empathy, compassion, and altruism play a role in emotional resilience.
