Rabbi Alexander and Dr. Lisha Kievit

Mental illness is often invisible: yet so too is mental wellness. Resilience, defined as the "ability to properly adapt to stress and adversity," can be such an important factor in navigating between the two. But why is it so important? How do we know if we have it? Are there ways to cultivate it in ourselves and others? Sharing perspectives and insights from clinical psychology and Reform Jewish practice, Dr. Lisha Kievit and Rabbi Alexander will guide us through a discussion of these questions and more.
