    George Bonano, professor of clinical psychology at Columbia University, has learned through his intense studies of grief that there is no one way to cope that is best, and that resilience is an outcome...not an aspect of character or even a skill you acquire. Using Bonano’s research (with a healthy mix in of the Multi System Model of Resilience from some smart folks at Ryers University), we will explore more about how eating a bag of chips can be considered adaptive coping, how talking to friends about the problem can be maladaptive coping, and explore a 3X3 model of recognizing and even cultivating resources in your life that can lead you to a resilient outcome every time... on the path and in the way that feels best to you.

    (45 minute session)

    There are (what feels like) countless articles, videos and even websites that tell you they have a mythical and magical list of things you can do or practice that will make you resilient (I’ll wait here a minute while you google it to verify my claim). Although those lists can be helpful in their own way, they can also be misleading by making you think that if you have checked all the boxes on the list...you are indeed resilient. Which is actually not true. 

    George Bonano, professor of clinical psychology at Columbia University, has learned through his intense studies of grief that there is no one way to cope that is best, and that resilience is an outcome...not an aspect of character or even a skill you acquire. 

    Using Bonano’s research (with a healthy mix in of the Multi System Model of Resilience from some smart folks at Ryers University), we will explore more about how eating a bag of chips can be considered adaptive coping and how talking to friends about the problem can be maladaptive coping. We will further outline and explore a 3X3 model (see takeaways below for additional details) of recognizing and even cultivating resources in your life that can lead you to a resilient outcome every time... on the path and in the way that feels best to you.

    Please make sure you have your phone handy, as well as a paper and pen for drawing out the model for your reference and to add personal notes and reflection. I also highly recommend having a snack on hand you enjoy :) 

    Key Takeaways:

    • Understand what makes a coping mechanism adaptive or maladaptive (spoiler...it's not what you think)
    • Outline the 3 mindsets that are linked to resilient outcomes and that allow you to focus on the task at hand in a constructive way
    • Outline “The Sequence” - 3 sets of questions that help you determine what you need to do for yourself in a specific situation to get closer to a resilient outcome
    • Outline the 3 systems/layers of resilience (internal, coping and pursuits, external) and brainstorm a list of what resources you already have access to in those systems and which ones you could cultivate
    • Use the MSMR tool/app to scientifically and empirically evaluate the potential for your own resilient outcomes based on what resources in each system you have access to now

    This webinar is best for anyone of any level who fulfills or supervises the role of Community Resource Specialist and wants to learn more about and be able to identify the different personalities of potential problem callers who have trouble realizing their own potential.

    When people need help and don’t know where to turn, they follow the yellow brick road to their local I&R Wizard and expect a miracle. Experienced I&R Specialists know there isn’t any magic - just hard work and a lot of resources. This session, presented by Richard Smith of Senior Resources of Guilford, based in Greensboro, North Carolina, will help I&R Specialists identify the different personalities of potential problem callers who have trouble realizing their own potential. Whether they are Cowardly Lions, Scarecrows or Tin Men, you will better understand how to overcome barriers and empower your callers to combine your referrals with their own resources and problem-solving skills to get to where they are going.

    July marks the 31st anniversary of the signing of the ADA, one of America's most comprehensive pieces of civil rights legislation that prohibits discrimination and guarantees that people with disabilities have the same opportunities as everyone else to participate in the mainstream of American life -- to enjoy employment opportunities, to purchase goods and services, and to participate in State and local government programs and services. We will enjoy a video about the history of support for and bias against individuals with disabilities and the advocacy efforts that culminated in the ADA. Panelists who are both individuals with disabilities and who work in the disability sector of I&R. They will be here to give their perspective on the ADA now, what works still needs to be done and answer your questions about situations you have faced in your work around the disability. An ASL interpreter is being provided.
