Many have encountered major traumas in their lives, such as the sudden death of a loved one or a natural disaster. This recorded session from the 2019 Amygdala, Stress, and PTSD Conference at the Uniformed Services University will outline the training methods that increase resilience, or the ability to "bounce back" after trauma. Specific resilience factors will be discussed through the experiences of highly resilient survivors who describe real-life methods for practicing and benefiting from the resilience factors.
The Amgydala, Stress and PTSD Conference at the Uniformed Services University brings together scientists and clinicians working towards solving the biological basis of stress, fear, and posttraumatic stress disorder. Sessions at this conference promote awareness of complementary areas that relate to trauma and the amygdala.
