Overview

Resilience Across the Lifespan: Strength-Based Strategies to Nurture Positive Mindsets, Caring, and Hope in Ourselves and Others with Dr. Robert Brooks

June 9 to 12, 2020

As professionals, we must manage our own feelings of stress and even burnout as we strive to bring meaning and purpose to our lives and the lives of others.  In this symposium, Dr. Brooks will describe interventions rooted in a strength-based framework for nurturing a “resilient mindset,” including the attributes of self-dignity, responsibility, compassion, and hope for both patients and professionals.  These interventions can be applied with individuals of all ages in a variety of settings including outpatient therapy, schools, homes, inpatient and residential programs, and the workplace.  Many case examples will be used.
