What is resilience?

This word, which has become trendy and is used wrongly, especially in this period of pandemic, in the professional circles, in order to encourage people to bounce back from a situation, is much more complex that it sounds. For there to be resilience, there must be trauma. And for there to be trauma, one must go beyond the trauma.

We must be confronted with trauma at least once in our lives and must draw on our strengths to become resilient.

But how to do this ?

Bruno Humbeeck, a specialist in resilience who works with Boris Cyrulnik, will help us to better understand the concept of resilience, its resources and to overcome the trauma.
