Hardiness: A New Construct For A New Time

The year 2020 has been a time of extraordinary stress and trauma for most all of us. In additional to individual traumas, we’ve experienced a series of unprecedented natural disasters, a global pandemic, and frequently deadly civil and political strife. Few alive today have experienced a year in which so many bad things happened to so many people.
In this video I take a look at hardiness, a personality trait that is protective of our mental wellness in challenging times. I also share details of our November 7-8, 2020 online integrative trauma recovery retreat. Our focus this year will be on building hardiness in ourselves and our communities. We’ve reduced the cost this year to make the retreat more affordable to anyone interested in joining us. Learn more at www.reclaiminglifeaftertrauma.com
