Last week’s post on basic needs and Maslow’s Hierarchy reminded me how immensely capable humans are at managing and overcoming experiences of adversity, even when our most basic needs are unfulfilled. This coping or management of difficulties is frequently referred to as resiliency. Evidence suggests that individuals have this capacity, and to my surprise, communities and cities as well.
Join me for the next three weeks in this “mini series” as I unpack key aspects of resiliency and intriguing wellness related factors.
Week 1: Resiliency. What is it? Who has it? Why does it matter?
Week 2: Resiliency manifestations. Incredible real life stories of resiliency.
Week 3: To be determined.
