Dr. Neufeld will be delivering a two-part day seminar on Resilience, Trauma and Relationship at the BC Alternate Education Conference.

Why are so many more of our children and youth presenting as troubled or troubling? And why are their numbers increasing in a time of relative freedom from societal conflict and distress? Why do some bounce back from trauma and others fall apart? Dr. Neufeld puts the puzzle pieces together to reveal a three-factor model of resilience. In the process he also uncovers a type of pseudo resilience that renders children and youth more capable of functioning in wounding scenarios but is rigid and brittle and can break suddenly when the going gets too rough.
