The Science of Adversity, Resilience, and Transformation | Audrey Stillerman | TEDxUofIChicago

vor 2 Jahren

Our current and historical experiences as individuals, in families, in communities and as a society affect our biology and chart the course of our growth and development, for better or worse, across the lifespan and from generation to generation. Humane social conditions, secure attached relationships, and participation in self-regulation practices allow us to build resilience and weather life’s storms. We have the knowledge and power to prevent, mitigate, and treat the root causes of our deepest suffering so that we can identify our true purpose and fulfill our potential. Our lives and the lives of the next 7 generations depend on it.

Audrey Stillerman, MD, is the Associate Director of Medical Affairs for the University of Illinois Office of Community Engagement and Neighborhood Health Initiative and medical director for its Mile Square-affiliated school health center program, which includes medical and behavioral health services. Dr. Stillerman is board-certified in both Family Medicine and Integrative Medicine and has been providing comprehensive care for the whole family, from babies to senior citizens, since 1991. She has worked in a variety of public and private practice settings: caring for patients; teaching medical students, residents and community members; and advocating for holistic care for some of Chicago’s neediest residents. She will discuss shifting the current illness and health paradigm through using an ACEs and trauma framework to transform practice and outcomes.
