Resiliency jenna-2013

  1. 1. RESILIENCY From regeneration to thriving: What’s in Your Toolbox?
  2. 2. Resiliency: The Basics  When we speak of resiliency in human terms we talk a lot about some innate skill or ability that is part nature, part nurture and part super hero.. as ambiguous as strength, we often use the word “resiliency” interchangeably with strength and resourceful. “Wow, you are so strong…I could never survive that.”  What we now know through three decades of resiliency research is that resilience is best understood as a process.] Most research now shows that resilience is the result of individuals being able to interact with their environments and the processes that either promote well-being or protect them against the overwhelming influence of risk factors.[14] These processes can be individual coping strategies, or may be helped along by good families, schools, communities, and social policies that make resilience more likely to occur.[15] In this sense "resilience" occurs when there are cumulative "protective factors". These factors are likely to play a more and more important role the greater the individual’s exposure to cumulative "risk factors". The phrase "risk and resilience"' in this area of study is quite common.  Resilience is a dynamic process whereby individuals exhibit positive behavioral adaptation when they encounter significant adversity, trauma,[17] tragedy, threats, or even significant sources of stress.
  3. 3. Regeneration in Nature regeneration is the process of renewal, restoration, and growth that makes genomes, cells, organs, organisms, and ecosystems resilient to natural fluctuations or events that cause disturbance or damage. Every species is capable of regeneration, from humans.[
  4. 4. Adaptation in Nature  Adaptations help organisms survive in their ecological niche or habitat; adaptations can be anatomical, behavioral or physiological.  Anatomical adaptations are physical features such as an animals shape.  Behavioral adaptations can be inherited or learnt and include tool use, language and swarming behavior.  Physiological adaptations include the ability to make venom; but also more general functions such as temperature regulation.
  5. 5. Starfish Facts Despite its name, the starfish is not a fish; it’s an echinoderm, closely related to sea urchins and sand dollars. They have bony, calcified skin, which protects them from most predators, and many wear striking colors that camouflage them or scare off potential attackers. Some species of starfish have the ability to regenerate lost arms and can regrow an entire new arm given time. Some of these can regrow the rest of their bodies from a single arm, while others need at least part of the central disc to be attached to the arm. Regrowth can take several months to years. There are some 2,000 species of sea star living in all the world’s oceans, from tropical habitats to the cold seafloor. The five-arm varieties are the most common, hence their name, but species with 10, 20, and even 40 arms exist. Most sea stars also have the remarkable ability to consume prey outside their bodies. Using tiny, suction-cupped tube feet, they pry open clams or oysters, and their sack-like cardiac stomach emerges from their mouth and oozes inside the shell. The stomach then envelops the prey to digest it, and finally withdraws back into the body.
  6. 6. Starfish Mythology The starfish has various representations in mythology: There is an aboriginal myth that starfish assisted other animals in reaching their destination in Australia. There is the Egyptian line drawing that depicted both the stars of the sky and of the Red Sea with meanings of life purpose and the afterlife. There are other myths, such as the one about a boy who was throwing washed up starfish back into the sea. When asked by an old man why he bothered since he couldn't possibly rescue them all, the boy replied, as he threw one of the starfish back into the sea, " It made a difference for that one!" There is the story of the Star of the Sea or Stella Maris who lovingly creates safe travel over troubled waters and is also seen as an emblem of salvation during trying times.

  13. 13. What Helps You Calm Down?  Deep breaths  Counting to ten  Finding a quiet space  Soft Music  Accepting the need to find space to calm down.  Finding a grounding place in body (feet are great anchors and so is the breath)
  14. 14. How does journaling help build resiliency?  Journaling is a safe place to share your thoughts, feelings and story. It also helps you get perspective on strong emotions that feel overwhelming.  It helps you make sense of thoughts and even see patterns in the way you think and even talk to yourself.  It is a physical way to be in the moment. Pen, paper, and you.  It captures a moment in time you will never get back. And will help you track who you are throughout your life’s journey.  It helps you find your unique voice as a person, writer and artist.
  15. 15. Conclusion  We all have the ability to heal and thrive. We are all starfish.  Children learn how to manage stress from their primary caretakers and their environment.  To reduce childhood depression and future mental illness parents need to develop and practice certain coping skills, which will enhance their own resiliency and extend into their parenting.  We have to learn those coping skills.  Telling our story through journaling and expressive arts is an important resource and one easily learned and practiced.  Slowing down the moment through writing, art and meditation increases relaxation, body awareness, thought recognition, and helps to create a safe space we can always return to.
