The Neuroscience Behind Resilience
Date & Time
Thursday, June 11, 2020, 3:00 PM - 4:15 PM
Dr Helena Boschi

Research into the neuroscience of resilience is still a relatively new area.   In an increasingly stressful world, interest in resilience continues to rise, giving us a better awareness of the coping mechanisms needed to deal with or bounce back from the difficult situations we face. 

This session will explore insights into the biological, psychological and social factors associated with resilience and will offer practical ideas to help us stay strong and capable.  In these current times, it is all the more important that we take responsibility for our neural, cognitive and biological health and well-being. 

Helena will take us through the brain’s response to stress, why and when stress is dangerous, why some people are resilient than others and how we can develop the right mindset and habits to strengthen our systems throughout our life.
