Finding Resilience During Medical Adversity

In episode 251 of Ordinary People Doing Extraordinary Things, we are back with our Wednesday segment where I chat with psychologists, therapists and other experts on the science of personal growth. The month of April will focus on Resilience and features medical psychiatrist Dr. Ryan Todd, the CEO of Headversity and performance psychologist who worked as a lead for the Canadian Olympic team, Dr. Karen MacNeill, the Chief Product Officer of Headversity. 

This episode will highlight Ryan and his work in the medical field helping people after adverse events and traumatic experiences.  You'll hear him talk about how he helps in hospitals and why having a psychologist helps patients who are going through trauma such as mental health issues, cancer, amputation, etc.  You'll hear how he's helping them build resilience (listen to the headversity 6 step way to build resilience here), how do decide if someone needs help even if they say they don't, why it's hard to teach people new skills after trauma, how he teaches acceptance and how to live the best life you can with what you have, stories of how he's helped people overcome anxiety in tough situations, why he says it's okay to be angry and more.
