Human Resilience: George Bonanno

George A. Bonanno, Ph.D. is a professor of Clinical Psychology at Teachers College, Columbia University. He is known as a pioneering researcher in the field of bereavement and trauma. The New York Times on February 15, 2011, stated that the current science of bereavement has been "driven primarily" by Bonanno. Scientific American summarized a main finding of his work, "The ability to rebound remains the norm throughout adult life." Bonanno's research found psychological resilience to be at the core of human grief and trauma reactions.

Below are two presentations by Dr. Bonanno that review the findings of his research on human resilience.
