In this video I cover 6 important lessons about resilience in the face of trauma:
How PTSD can be prevented through healthy support networks
2 common crises after a traumatic event
3 skills that can help heal trauma, PTSD, and improve mental health
and resources that we can all access to be more resilient in the face of difficult experiences.
Elizabeth Smart has a lot to teach us about resilience in the face of trauma, as a 14 year old girl she was kidnapped form her home and held hostage by a man who pretended to be a prophet.
She experienced horrible abuse and trauma, but did not develop PTSD. I learned a lot from reading her story and I was reminded of the resilient nature of the human spirit from Elizabeth’s example.
