Event Description

A Neufeld Institute Conference co-sponsored by Jack Hirose and Associates

Human resilience is remarkable. It is the ultimate good news story – that stress in itself is not the enemy and that we need not be brought down by the circumstances in our lives. After years of mistaken focus on the stress part of the equation, the focus is now on uncovering the keys that can unlock the amazing human potential to grow through adversity, to thrive under duress, and to bounce back from trauma.

Resilience is probably the most important topic of our time. It holds the answers to emotional health and well-being, to mental illness, to healing and recovery, to prevention, to addiction, and much more. Resilience is not only the best overall prevention but also the best focus for intervention. Resilience should be everyone’s concern, not only the medical and helping professionals, but also educators, parents, and society at large. Resilience is about ourselves and those we are responsible for.

This conference is a fundraiser for the Neufeld Institute and the offspring of a collaborative effort between Jack Hirose of Jack Hirose and Associates and Dr. Gordon Neufeld of the Neufeld Institute – a worldwide charitable organization delivering developmental science to those responsible for our children. Most of the speakers have generously donated their time and forfeited their usual speaker fees to support this fundraiser. The Neufeld Institute is deeply grateful for all who have extended themselves in this way.

Although participants may choose to enroll in one day, two days or three days, the conference itself will be continuous in nature, building on the model and theoretical foundations that Dr. Neufeld will present on Day One and Two in the mornings. Five of the senior Neufeld Institute Faculty will flesh out this model of resilience with special applications in mind. Dr. Martin Brokenleg and Dr. Gabor Mate will add their wealth of experience and perspectives on this subject. On Day Three, the three doctors will be in Maria LeRose’s most capable hands as she facilitates some dialogue and discussion between them. It is rare for ‘experts’ to have the opportunity to interact with each other, never mind in the context of a live audience of informed participants
