What 2020 Has Taught Us About Human Resilience – BMC on The Good Trade

Carrie Krawiec, LMFT Family Therapist at Birmingham Maple Clinic, was recently featured on The Good Trade to discuss the healing power of storytelling when dealing with the stresses that we carry.  When dealing with all of the negative events that happened in 2020, telling stories can help build mental resilience to difficulties in life.  Carrie notes:

“In research of families following horrors like the Holocaust, those with a pattern of sharing stories of things that had happened were more resilient in subsequent generations […] In families where the pattern was to sweep things under a rug or push down these stories for fear they would be too upsetting, there was shame and avoidance of difficulty. And when difficulty happened, it would feel like there was no well with which to pull resilience from.”
