Resilience is a multi-faceted phenomenon-it encompasses personal, interpersonal, and community experiences. Innovative Approaches to Individual and Community Resilience reviews the current research, and details differing levels and approaches to resilience. On a micro-level, the book specifies how to develop appropriate coping strategies, maintain cognitive flexibility, and identify, label, and share feelings before acting upon them. On a macro-level, it defines and explores environmental resilience, social resilience, community resilience, and family resilience and how utilizing healthy family and relationship support during critical times of trauma, as well as relying upon the bond of communities and a shared experience, can increase and enhance healing. It provides practical, specific applications for use in practice, and ends with implications for future research.

  • Explores aspects of resilience within the individual, community, and environment
  • Outlines critical factors that allow people to not just survive, but to thrive
  • Addresses the crucial role of the family in the development of resilience
  • Reflects upon the need for resilience as a clinician, and how to achieve it
