In the U.S. a large swath of people have been exposed to trauma. Why is it that not everybody who is exposed to trauma gets Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)? The dictionary would tell you that resilience is the power or ability to return to original form after being compressed, bent, and stretched. This definition gives you a picture that when resiliency is in play, it is as if the compressing, the bending, and the stretching never even happened.

However, when it comes to trauma this is far from what happens. At a recent ABS Community of Practice event, I did a talk on resilience to trauma healing specialists.

If you have ever wondered why some people are resilient and are curious to know if there are ways we can support people’s resilience, take a look at the video.
