Bolstering Resilience in Adolescents and Young Adults Facing Cancer Kailie Sullivan LCSW, OSW-C was recorded November 2019. What does it mean to be resilient? Its more than being able to "bounce back" from a difficult experience. It's in part a set of resources and skills that individuals can develop to be better prepared to respond to life's challenges. This webinar will provide an overview of resilience theory as it applies to adolescent and young adults impacted by cancer, whether it be their own or a loved one's diagnosis. Participants will learn to identify key factors associated with increased resiliency. Interventions shown to promote resiliency in the AYA population will be discussed, including an innovative adventure-based therapeutic program for adolescent cancer caregivers.
