Resilience and other psychological resources are developed through turning passing experiences of these inner strengths into lasting changes in the nervous system. But most such experiences wash through us like water through a sieve, while negative experiences “stick" due to the brain’s negativity bias – which reduces learning, motivation, and response to interventions. This talk will explore practical ways to heighten the internalization of beneficial experiences, and then apply these methods to three aspects of resilience: feeling strong, grateful, and cared about.
