Resiliency in Our Lives—When Do We Need it and How Do We Get It?
Whereas we tend to think about resiliency in terms of other people’s feats of courage and survival, the reality is that we all draw upon resiliency whether we are dealing with daily life or facing trauma and adversity. On this show, host Suzanne Phillips discusses resiliency with Dr. Siddharth Ashvin Shah, a board-certified preventive medicine physician with experience supporting and enhancing resiliency around the globe.

Listen in, as resiliency is shown to be different for different people depending on inborn traits, life experiences and learned strategies. You will learn about the role of parents in building a child’s resilience and hear how Dr. Shah has been training his own toddler to deal with something frightening. You will have a chance to participate as Dr. Shah invites Suzanne and listeners to try out a guided imagery technique for personal stress reduction that supports resiliency. From the unexpected role of neurochemistry to the power of laugher, Dr. Shah discusses the ways in which we need, use and keep developing resiliency in our lives.
