Trauma-based & Family Psychotherapy For Angry, Anxious, Depressed, and Frustrated Families

Resiliency: Are You A Resilient Adult?

ResilienceResiliency has more to do with external supports and protective factors than your determination.

Would you consider yourself resilient? If so, in what ways?

In this article, I will discuss the Resiliency Questionnaire and provide the scale for you to take.Resilience is typically defined as one’s ability to overcome challenges in life and move forward in strength. This is often easier said than done for many people who have grown up with childhood trauma.

Resilience is often the result of protective factors in one’s life. Examples include supportive and loving parents, good education, access to employment, internal motivation, goal setting, etc. Without protective factors, resilience may not be possible.The Resiliency Questionnaire can be regarded as the “sister” of the ACE Questionnaire.


In this video, I provide the scale questions and encourage you to take it for yourself.

As always, I wish you well

*CORONA VIRUS UPDATE1050 Lincoln Way, Ste 1 - Pittsburgh PA

States across the nation are passing laws, reducing restrictions, and enacting new regulations to help support the transition from stay-at-home orders to the normal flow of life again.

To keep everyone at Anchored Child & Family Counseling safe, I will only be opening the office for in-person sessions 1 day of the week. The other days of the week will consist of teletherapy sessions until the mask wearing restrictions are reduced or eliminated and corona virus cases have gone down.

My office assistant and I will be monitoring insurance policies for any changes to corona-related cost share, copayment, and coinsurance policies. I will be checking and rechecking insurance policies to ensure you will be covered for teletherapy. At this time, all major insurance companies (UPMC, Highmark, Aetna, Optum/United, and Cigna) are continuing to provide coverage for teletherapy into September 2020.

Please continue to stay safe!
