Please join the Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma on Thursday, October 5 at 5:30pm E.S.T. for a discussion about “Resilience: The Science of Mastering Life's Greatest Challenges (3rd Edition).” Co-authored by Dennis Charney M.D., Steven Southwick, M.D., and Jonathan M. DePierro, M.D., the book looks at how resilience factors help us to adapt and grow — now revised and updated in its third edition for a post-pandemic world. In conversation with the Dart Center's executive director, Bruce Shapiro, Dr. Charney and Dr. DePierro will discuss how to apply the principles in today's world.
About the book: In "Resilience," three experts in trauma and resilience answer key questions: What helps people adapt to life's most challenging situations? How can you build up your own resilience? What do we know about the science of resilience? Combining cutting-edge scientific research with the personal experiences of individuals who have survived some of the most traumatic events imaginable, including the COVID-19 pandemic, this book provides a practical resource that can be used time and time again. The experts describe ten key resilience factors, including facing fear, optimism, and relying on role models, through the experiences and personal reflections of highly resilient survivors.
