The exploration of resilience will focus on its connection to the growing field of trauma-informed care. We will also provide information on the neurobiology of resilience and identify its key components. By the end of this webinar participants will be able to: understand the importance of focusing on strengths and incorporating resilience into their practice with individuals receiving services.
