Resilience and Disability

Resilience and Disability is a program designed to assist you in learning and practicing the  skills and attitudes of resilience so that you can better manage your life, your health and disability. The program provides the opportunity to practice these skills and attitudes as you attempt to manage these challenges.

“To succeed and manage the challenges that you face with a disability, you will need resilience. Those who cope well with a disability, who bounce back, end up knowing more about resilience than the average person. In fact, we have used persons with a disability to teach the skills and attitudes of resilience to more ‘able-bodied’ individuals.”

The people you will hear from on these DVD’s are everyday people who have survived real world tragedies. We have asked them all  questions:

  •              What are the most difficult challenges you have encountered?
  •              How do you deal,or have you dealt with these challenges?
  •              How have these challenges effected you?
  •              Do you have any comments about resilience?

We would like to thank John Nunan and Justin Alves of alphaOne for creating these extraordinary DVD’s.
