Do you ever wonder what makes some people able to navigate trauma, adversity, life’s difficult situations more effectively than others? 

Are some people naturally more resilient than others or can it be learned? What is true resilience? 

How do you measure a person's resiliency? 

Can we teach our children how to be more resilient? 

This is the topic of exploration today with special guest Jonathan M. DePierro, PhD, is Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and Associate Director of Mount Sinai's Center for Stress, Resilience, and Personal Growth. Dr. DePierro, a clinical psychologist, is an expert in psychological resilience and the treatment of trauma-related mental health conditions.

He is the co-author of the third edition of Resilience: The Science of Mastering Life's Greatest Challenges

There are 10 resilience factors:

  1. Confront their fears

  2. Maintain an optimistic but realistic outlook

  3. Seek, accept and provide social support

  4. Imitate role models

  5. Reply on an inner moral compass

  6. Turn to religious and spiritual practices

  7. Attend to their health and well-being

  8. Remain curious, pushing themselves to learn new things

  9. Approach problems with flexibility and at times, acceptance

  10. Find meaning, and growth during and after their traumatic experience
