Professor John Maltby, from the department of Neuroscience, Psychology and Behaviour, will give his Professorial Inaugural Lecture on Monday 26 February 2018 entitled ‘The Psychology of Everyday Resilience’.

Lecture Synopsis

The term resilience is used often, both in academia and everyday life. The lecture explores, that when it comes to defining what psychological resilience is, there are many and varied explanations. This leads to the problem of how to best to think and apply psychological resilience. The lecture explores how a simple model of resilience, used in another discipline, might work very well to solve the current problem in psychology. The lecture also discusses that by taking this approach, we have been able to develop our thinking about psychological resilience, demonstrating that certain types of resilience are more suited to certain everyday outcomes.
