According to Miriam-Webster, adversity is a state or instance of serious or continued difficulty or misfortune. While all individuals will encounter adversity, how one handles difficult situations determines whether they will thrive or buckle under the circumstances. During this two hour event, Dr. Kent Corso, a clinical psychologist and behavior analyst, will review some of the primary literature on mental health, resilience and exceptional human behavior. The discussion will focus on common sources of adversity, including the obstacles and changes the COVID-19 pandemic has thrust upon the world, and will include suggestions about how to empower clients/patients to increase their ability to adapt to and overcome during times of adversity.
- Participants will be able to define resilience and adaptation concisely and in the context of coping with challenging life events.
- Participants will be able to recognize common barriers people encounter when trying to overcome adversity.
- Participants will be able to identify how clarifying one’s values, meaning and purpose in life (i.e., from acceptance and commitment therapy) can help the person adapt and overcome adversity.
Dr. Corso is a clinical psychologist and board certified behavior analyst. He is a prior U.S. Air Force Officer and veteran of the Post-9/11 wars, and currently holds adjunct faculty appointments at Ohio State University’s Psychiatry Department and the Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences’ Family Medicine Department. Dr. Corso’s background over the last 20 years reflects one consistent theme: the application of behavioral sciences to novel areas of science and broader society. He is heavily involved in military medicine, evidence-based methods of suicide prevention and intervention, and integrating behavioral health into primary care medical settings. Dr. Corso’s research has yielded over 40 peer-reviewed publications and a book entitled Integrating Behavioral Health into the Medical Home: A Rapid Implementation Guide (Greenbranch Publishing, 2016). Most recently, his passion for facilitating meaningful change and measuring human performance resulted in the inception of an agile software firm (Xcelerate Innovations). With his partners, Dr. Corso developed the first native iOS applications for the Standard Celeration Chart (i.e., AimStar Pro and AimStar Lite).
