Aligning Resilience to Support Your Needs

Western Keynote Address

Getting through a doctorate, securing a postdoctoral position, and preparing to take on the world are challenging endeavours under normal circumstances. Amid a global pandemic, it can be outright daunting. In these pursuits, the word “resilience” appears more relevant than ever before. Yet, what is resilience? What does science say about resilience? And how can we harness or build our resilience during these unprecedented times? This talk will overview concepts of resilience, discuss their implications for research and applications, and overview the effectiveness of resilience training across a number of mental health, physiological, and behavioural outcomes. Attendees will receive tips and insights to maximize individual and collective resilience.
