    What is the Mystery of Resilience?

    Presented by

    Lise Deguire, Psy.D

    Dr. Deguire is a clinical psychologist and childhood burn survivor.  At the age of four, she suffered third degree burns on two thirds of her body, setting her on a journey of pain, hospitalizations and social ostracism.  Yet, she now lives a life of great joy, meaning, and purpose.   

    In her talk, Dr Deguire uses these personal experiences to discuss psychological resilience, he cognitive tools of resilience (G.O.A.L.S.+M.M), and how we can help our clients and ourselves cope more resiliently with life’s challenges.


    Learning Objectives:

    1.     Understand the mindset of psychological resilience.
    2.     Describe 6 elements of psychological resilience (G.O.A.L.S. + M.M.)
    3.     Describe ways to strength these 6 elements.

    This program is intended for psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, nurses, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, and graduate students. It will be presented at an intermediate level, meant for those with some prior knowledge of the subject matter. The presenter does not have any commercial support and/ or conflict for interest for this program.
