Michael Ungar, Ph.D., is a family therapist, a researcher at Dalhousie University, and the author of I Still Love You: Nine Things Troubled Kids Need From Their Parents.
Nurturing Resilience explores the many factors that make children (and adults) resilient. Building on Dr. Ungar's research and clinical practice, this blog shows that resilience is not just something inside a person. When problems are larger, resilience is just as much something that is nurtured by families, schools and communities. An individual's ability to cope under adversity is seldom enough to sustain wellbeing without the support of caring others.
