Resilience Unravelled: Resilience is not cuddly. Podcast with Professor Antonia Bifulco

Toni Bifulco was invited to participate in a podcast, one of a series run on resilience, by Russell Thackeray of QED ( experts in change management in organisations.

The discussion was quite wide ranging on resilience in everyday life and in relation to vulnerable populations. Issues of childhood adversity, different attachment styles and responses to stress were outlined. Its application to stress in the workplace was also discussed. Toni Bifulco drew on research into resilience across the lifespan. Resilience factors include secure attachment style, good support and effective coping strategies. She also outlined her team's latest ESRC project 'Stress Online' a computerised assessment of life events which provides  a relatively objective assessment of recent stressful experience. This is to be offered to different agencies in assessing stress, vulnerability and resilience, including organisations in relation to worker stress, and voluntary agencies in relation to client stress.
