Promoting Resilience in Youth and Adults
Strengthening Health Care Teams

Resilience is the ability to "bounce back" from significant stress and adversity and still pursue one's goals. Worries, sadness, and hopelessness can make it difficult to be resilient--especially when one feels alone in dealing with these problems.

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is an evidence based intervention that helps youth and adults develop healthier attitudes and effective coping strategies. Positive psychotherapy is a new generation of CBT interventions that focuses on learning how to use one’s strengths to handle challenging situations better and increase sources of happiness and meaning in life.
