Resilience has been defined as the ability to adapt successfully when faced with adversity, chronic stress, trauma, or major threat. The last decade has seen significant advances in the study of resilience at multiple levels of inquiry in concert, including genetic, epigenetic, neurobiological and psychosocial levels, both during development and adulthood. A range of factors that have been linked to resilience are potentially modifiable with preventive and treatment interventions for high-risk populations. The sessions will review data from translational research to clinical applications across the life span and across trauma- and stress-related psychiatric disorders, including depression, anxiety, PTSD, and others.

#ADAA2020 Learning Objectives:

  1.  Attendees will understand the meaning of resilience, as demonstrated through translational models, human subjects research, and clinical applications
  2.  Attendees will identify the genetic, epigenetic, neurobiological, developmental, and psychosocial underpinnings of resilience
  3.  Attendees will be exposed to preventive and treatment interventions aimed at enhancing resilience across the life span

The ADAA 2020 40th Annual Conference (March 19-22, San Antonio, TX) will bring together an expected 1,400 clinicians and researchers from across the US and around the world who want to improve treatments and find cures for anxiety, depression and co-occurring disorders. Choose from 150+ sessions, hear engaging plenary speakers, learn about cutting-edge thinking in research and clinical practice, and earn CEs and CMEs. Find your professional home, leave more connected to your peers and better able to integrate research, practice, and community. #ADAA2020
