Resilience is not simply the ability to survive a difficult experience, but the ability to adapt and cope with circumstances in a way that enables you to emerge stronger, to thrive, and integrate lessons learned. Diane will share valuable ways to cultivate resilience in your everyday life, review characteristics of resilience, and describe lessons learned from survivors of traumatic situations. Surprisingly, older adults who practice resilience report feeling happier than younger people, despite the losses and declines which may be experienced in later life and the challenging times that we live in.
Diane Wilson is a licensed marriage and family therapist who specializes in working with older adults, adult children of aging parents, people going through transitions, and those who are experiencing grief and loss. She has worked in the Bay Area for almost 30 years. She now maintains a virtual private practice in San Francisco.
