In Sickness & Health

Building your resilience can affect many aspects of your life, from career to home to school. In this podcast, psychologists Sarah Bannon, PhD, and Jonathan M. DePierro, PhD, discuss the importance of one-on-one relationships and resilience both personally and in their professional work with neurology patients.



[00:00:00] Stephen Calabria: From the Mount Sinai Health System in New York City, this is Road to Resilience, a podcast about facing adversity. I'm Stephen Calabria.

[00:00:11] Today we have a special edition of Road to Resilience to celebrate publication of the third edition of the book that inspired this show's creation.

[00:00:18] The book is called Resilience, the Science of Mastering Life's Greatest Challenges, which can be found on Amazon and wherever books are sold.

[00:00:26] The newest edition was composed in part by John DePierro, Ph. D., an Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, and the Associate Director of Mount Sinai's Center for Stress, Resilience, and Personal Growth.
