This week our guest is an expert in resilience - what it is, if you can learn it, and how to teach it to your kids. Resilience is what separates the people who stay knocked down and the ones who decide to get back up and try again. It’s something I am fascinated by. Our guest Dr. Lucy Hone got personal and vulnerable as she shared her own story of grief and then later resilience.
About Dr. Hone
Dr Lucy Hone is a director of the New Zealand Institute of Wellbeing & Resilience, a research associate at AUT University, a published academic researcher, best-selling author and blogger for Psychology Today. In 2014, the sudden death of her 12-year old daughter, Abi, (along with Lucy and Abi’s friends Ella and Sally Summerfield in a tragic road accident) forced Lucy to turn her substantial academic training and professional practice to foster resilience in very personal circumstances. The blog she wrote in the aftermath of Abi’s death attracted international attention and resulted in the best-selling non-fiction title, What Abi Taught Us: Strategies for Resilient Grieving (Allen & Unwin, 2016), now available as Resilient Grieving in the US, Australia, UK and NZ.
