Bouncing Back Part 1

Bouncing Back Part 1

This episode was produced In partnership with Wellbeing Waterloo Region. During times like these what does resilience look like? Is bouncing back from adversity something we can foster and build in ourselves and our children? This episode is offered in two parts. Listen back to back if you have the time (60 mins) or listen individually (30 mins each). Our conversation is sparked by the profound words of Elder Tom Porter of the Bear Clan of the Mohawk nation at Akwesasne, as he speaks about how respect and resilience connect families and communities in First Nations people. We also hear from world-renowned resilience expert Dr. Michael Ungar, Director of the Resilience Resource Centre at Dalhousie University, who weighs in with what his decades of world-wide research has revealed about resilience and what it means to us and our children in the face of the global pandemic.
