Join the Selwyn Foundation on 1 November for their annual Ageing and Spirituality conference, which this year is being held at Selwyn Village Theatre, 43 Target Street, Point Chevalier, Auckland.
The American Psychologists Association defines resilience as the process of adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats or significant sources of stress. These sources of threat can be mental, physical as well as spiritual. When it comes to the power of resilience in older people, often those who care - such as family, friends or health professionals ‘hold’ the resilience when a person is particularly frail.
Resilience building techniques come from the ability to share experiences and results. Stories, it seems, have both an empowering and therapeutic effect in guiding oneself or others to a point of recovery and reengagement. This year’s Ageing and Spirituality agenda will focus on the many aspects of resilience, with presenters sharing their stories and secrets of success.
