Everyday Social Resilience – Module 30



The program presents a research-based approach that demonstrates that popular language and approach to resilience are based on a false strategy that is primarily individualistic, brain-centric, based on ‘effort’ and disconnected from Socialitie. All the research shows that the most successful approaches to risk are enabled by social connection, community and family support, supporting groups and collectives and, an ecological understanding of risk factors, trauma and stress. All forms of mental health dysfunction surface and present through social disconnectedness and withdrawal. The focus of this program is based on the extensive and successful work of Gabor Mate, Bessel Van Der Kolk and embodied being research (Antonio Damasio and Mark Johnson). In order to claim back the dynamic of what resilience is really about, our language and discourse has to change. Rather than think of resilience as static, bounce back or pull yourself together, SPoR thinks of Resiliencing, the constant and ongoing enactment of Everyday Social Resilience. Connected to Everyday Social Resiliencing are other critical factors such as: embodied learning, communities-of-practice, Discourse analysis, Transdisciplinarity, Interaffectivity, Holistic Ergonomics, Spirituality, Poetics, Semiotics, Psychology of Goals, Mentalities and the Collective Unconscious.
