Summary of Reviews


Resilience is one of the most misunderstood concepts in mental health today. Simply, it is the outcome of optimizing life experience by being mindful about what you can control, can’t control, and have little control over. Join industrial psychologist and human capital specialist Peter Comrie as he explains the differences and how you can adapt and, therefore, become more resilient in any situation. He also shares how you are not a slave to your emotions, thoughts, and actions. Instead, you can learn from your challenges, even celebrate them, as you choose to feel, think, and behave in more authentic and resilient ways every day.



This vodcast will help you understand:

  • First-hand experience of grief turned to celebration
  • Theories and levels of control
  • Links between mindfulness, choice, adaptation, and resilience
  • Links between personal truth, personal responsibility, and resilience
  • Resistance to change as a barrier to resilience
  • Resilience at individual, family, workplace, and community scales
