Psychological Trauma and Resilience                                           

Co-hosted with UBC Emeritus College

A series on “Intergenerational Effects of Psychological Trauma,” hosted jointly by the Emeritus College and Green College in 2021-22, revealed an interest, appetite and need for further conversation in light of the trauma that we have all experienced over the past two to three years. Presentations in the course of the previous series yielded descriptions of the multifaceted nature of responses to the trauma experienced. They also raised questions about what contributes to or detracts from resilience. This new series, to be launched in the spring of 2023 and running through the main 2023-24 academic session, sets out to explore some of the many ways in which individuals and groups respond to trauma as well as identification of some specific and effective approaches to increase resilience.

Series Convener: Marv Westwood, Counseling Psychology

Event Dates: Oct 12, Nov 8, Jan 11, Feb 8, Mar 14, Apr 11

Sound, Silence, Power

Co-hosted with the Sound and the Humanities Research Cluster, UBC

More information on this series will be posted shortly.
