Free Download! The New Science of Resilience: How to Overcome Adversity and Trauma

“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way. When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.”  Viktor Frankl

Have you ever noticed how some people bounce back from adversity and adapt to life’s challenges more quickly than others?

In this free download, leading psychologist and trauma expert Dr. Arielle Schwartz shares new insights into developing greater hardiness and resilience in the face of adversity.

Dr. Arielle notes that one of the best and most well-known examples of resilience is the work of Austrian author and Holocaust survivor Viktor Frankl. 

“A big part of his work was really finding the pause between the stimulus and the response,” says Dr. Arielle. He pointed out that the key to developing greater resilience lies in being able to catch our reactivity and to change the belief that we are engaged in, which  filters how we perceive ourselves and respond to the world around us.”

Notes Dr. Arielle, resilience is not something we are born with. It’s a set of beliefs and actions that we can take to support our well-being. When we learn these actions and these ways of thinking, we can integrate them into our daily lives. We naturally respond to the world with that resiliency because it’s wired in. This allows us to respond to the world around us in a way that is ultimately empowering. 

“It helps us to go, well, I can’t change what happened to me, but I can change my relationship to it,” says Dr. Arielle. “I can change what I believe about myself, what I believe about the world. I can take actions that help me develop a sense of meaning in a world that is in some ways very broken.”

Dr. Arielle has spent more than 15 years studying trauma psychology and the new research on how resilience can help us feel stronger in the face of life’s challenges rather than feeling hopeless, helpless, and powerless.

Which factors can help us develop greater resilience? One crucial feature is cultivating a growth mindset, notes Dr. Arielle. This enables us to view challenges as opportunities for learning and development rather than insurmountable obstacles. By adopting this perspective, we can reframe our experiences and focus on the potential for growth and meaning, even in the face of difficulty.

One of the most exciting developments in the field of resilience is the growing body of evidence supporting the effectiveness of yogic techniques in building inner strength and adaptability. As a long-time yoga practitioner and instructor, Dr. Schwartz has witnessed firsthand the transformative power of these ancient practices.

Dr. Arielle notes that the 8-limbed path of yoga offers a comprehensive set of tools for cultivating inner strength. These include tools for regulating the nervous system, managing stress, and promoting greater emotional balance.

Dr. Arielle also explores the cutting-edge research on vagal tone and its role in promoting resilience. The vagus nerve, a key component of the autonomic nervous system, plays a crucial role in regulating our stress response and emotional well-being. By engaging in practices that support vagal tone, such as specific breathing techniques and yoga sequences, individuals can develop a greater capacity to handle stress and bounce back from adversity.

Throughout the interview, Dr. Schwartz emphasizes the importance of integrating these practices into daily life, creating a foundation of resilience to support us through life’s ups and downs. Whether you’re seeking to overcome personal traumas, navigate professional challenges, or simply build a more resilient mindset, the insights and techniques shared in this conversation can help you unlock your inner strength and thrive in the face of adversity.
