Ordinary Magic: Resilience Across the Lifespan (#3)

Continuing Education Series #3

While trauma is part of the human experience, resilience is an innate human capacity. It’s the most important superpower you didn’t realize you’ve always had. This presentation explores how childhood experiences of trauma (with specific focus on domestic violence exposure) shape our lives from an asset-based perspective, and reviews key considerations and best practices for crafting trauma-informed responses as strategies to bolster resilience capacity across the lifespan. Promising local, state, and national practice models and resources will be highlighted. The presenter will make the case that by shifting away from a deficit model and embracing lessons learned from resilience research, we can more effectively pave the pathway to prevention where individuals, families, and communities can thrive.
