Cari Amici del Cscp,
Abbiamo il piacere di segnalarvi la lezione magistrale del prof. Geroge A. Bonanno della Columbia University che si terrà mercoledì 4 luglio dalle 10:00 alle 13:30, presso la Sigmund Freud University di Milano.
Il titolo della lectio magistralis sarà “Loss, Trauma, and Human Resilience: An Elementary Approach” e di seguito vi riportiamo l’abstract della lezione:
“Psychological resilience has become a popular concept, and as a result has taken on myriad and often overlapping meanings. To be a useful framework for psychological research and theory, I. have argued that the study of resilience must explicitly reference each of four constituent temporal elements: (a) baseline or pre-adversity functioning, (b) the actual aversive circumstances, (c) post-adversity resilient outcomes, and (d) predictors of resilient outcomes. To illustrate these elements, I described research from my lab using latent trajectory modeling to identity prototypical trajectories of outcome, including resilience as well as chronic psychopathology, recovery, delayed difficulties, and improved functioning. We observed these trajectories in response to a range of PTEs, including bereavement, terrorist disaster, military combat, spinal cord injury, bio-epidemic, and cancer surgery. I will also describe our research on predictors of the resilience trajectory and devote particular attention to our research on various components of flexibility in coping and emotion regulation, as well as other resilience-promoting factors“.
