According to S.A.M.S.A., “Resilience develops over time and gives an individual the capacity not only to cope with life’s challenges but also to be better prepared for the next stressful situation. Optimism and the ability to remain hopeful are essential to resilience and the process of recovery.” Continue reading “Let’s Play BounceBack: 03/13/18 – Recovery”
Rank and File seems a fitting reference to the American middle class. Like the foot soldiers of the military, we are the majority, the “working class.” We don’t always approach our goals using such tight formation but strive we do. From lower to upper middle class, we set our sights on our financial goals and seek out the job that will help us to achieve them. But there are many challenges to middle-class America. Outsourcing and automation of jobs, and income that can’t keep pace with inflation. Continue reading “Let’s Play BounceBack: 03/08/18 – Rank and File”
People are open to radicalization when they have not been integrated into society; not necessarily because they rejected us and our values, but because in many ways we have rejected them and theirs. This isn’t about assimilation. It’s about lack of acceptance and support from family, peers, and society. If we are to reduce radicalization, we must first understand its genesis. Continue reading “Let’s Play BounceBack: 03/06/18 – Radicalization”
Tomorrow we present a card from our Downloadable Demonstration deck on Radicalism. Today, we would like to share an article we found on Vox. We chose this article because it offers much background information and insight into the radicalization process as it applies any vulnerable individual.

The National M.S. Society tells us that, “More than 2.3 million people are affected by MS worldwide. Because the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) does not require U.S. physicians to report new cases, and because symptoms can be completely invisible, the prevalence of MS in the U.S. can only be estimated.” An invisible disease that is unpredictable in nature can be particularly troubling. Because of its relapsing/remitting nature, symptoms that vary from person to person, and its uncertain course with no known cure, M.S. is a disease which can lead to emotional stress for the individual, family, and friends.
Use this deck individually. Work through some of the challenges presented as well as your own and practice the Skills & Attitudes of resilience. Connect and communicate with family, friends, and co-workers who may not recognize your struggles. Use it in a support group or as a teaching tool for healthcare professionals and newly-diagnosed patients.

According to a recent McKinsey Global Institute report, “Our scenarios suggest that half of today’s work activities could be automated by 2055, but this could happen up to 20 years earlier or later depending on various factors, in addition to other economic conditions.” We’re already seeing signs of disappearing tasks once completed by human hands. The fact of the matter is that machines and ‘bots’ can do some things faster, more efficiently and more consistently than we can. As much as this may sting our egos, to remain resilient we must take a long and serious look at our future role in the workforce.

Hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, and tsunamis. We’re far more familiar with these events than we used to be. Severe weather events uncharacteristic of the season catch us off guard. Some of these adversities may even be manmade such as fires and toxic spills. But regardless of the source, these events could easily become disasters if we are unprepared. It is no secret that resilient communities fair better during times of crisis. Continue reading “Let’s Play BounceBack: 02/22/18 – Natural Disaster”
Post-secondary education has many advantages. Many students flourish in this new and unique environment. Others feel stressed in the absence of an established support system, experience anxiety related to the need to make critical decisions (independently and almost daily) that will impact their success and become exhausted by the academic demands. Being prepared academically is not always enough. Students must be prepared for the entire college experience. Continue reading “Let’s Play BounceBack: 02/20/18 – More than Homesick”
