IPCD 2022 - Understanding Resilience in its wider context
Resilience has been one of the most talked-about concepts within the last couple of years; not only in psychology, but also in domains as diverse as the workplace, politics, climate change, and finance. Although most of the definitions of resilience focus on the adaptation and adjustment of the individual when faced with unexpected situations and significant sources of stress, not much acknowledgment is given to contextual factors. Therefore, IPCD’s 2022 theme will be dedicated to understanding resilience in its wider context - namely, how any individual's capacity for resilience interacts within the wider systems we exist in, and how resilience can be enhanced at the community, cultural and systemic level.
We look forward to seeing you there!
