Resilience During Times of Change and Challenge



Dr. Michael Ungar (Dalhousie University)

The CBA-NS Young Lawyers Section was pleased to have leading expert Dr. Michael Ungar present ‘Resilience during times of Change and Challenge'. 

Research on resilience is showing that our ability to cope with change is not just about having the right personal qualities (for example, being a rugged individual). It is much more about being a resourced individual with the right supports necessary to cope with crises, like the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. In this inspiring, story-filled presentation, Dr. Ungar will use his research from around the world and examples from his new book Change Your World: The Science of Resilience and the True Path to Success to explore twelve factors that are critical to our resilience, now more than ever.

Michael Ungar, Ph.D., is a Family Therapist and Professor of Social Work at Dalhousie University where he holds the Canada Research Chair in Child, Family and Community Resilience. Since 2002, Dr. Ungar has directed the Resilience Research Centre, designing multisite longitudinal research and evaluation projects in collaboration with organizations such as The World Bank, The Red Cross, and national public health agencies. With over $10M in funded research, Dr. Ungar’s clinical work and research spans more than a dozen low, middle, and high-income countries, with much of that work focused on the resilience of adult populations experiencing mental health challenges. Dr. Ungar has published over 200 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters on the subject of resilience and is the author of 16 books for mental health professionals, researchers and parents. This includes Change Your World: The Science of Resilience and the True Path to Success, a book for adults experiencing stress at work and at home. His blog, Nurturing Resilience, can be read on Psychology Today’s website.
