Resilience is about the ability to bounce back to normal functioning after times of stress, or even better, to be capable of optimal functioning in the face of adversity. It is about healing after being wounded; recovery after losing one’s balance; optimal functioning when under fire. Every human possesses the potential for resilience but this capacity remains elusive to many. Resilience is not inherited and cannot be learned; it must be developed and childhood is the ideal time for this. Many people confuse resilience with ‘toughness,’ when individuals seem unaffected by adversity or are capable of basic functioning in wounding scenarios. In fact, the very armour that makes this possible also interferes with the development of the real thing. In this presentation, Dr. Neufeld will discuss the essence of true resilience and reveal the keys to developing this capacity in our children and in ourselves.

Dr. Neufeld's presentations will take place from 9:00am to 4:00pm on each of the three days.
