Building Resilience: A New Model for Managing Stress and Enhancing Performance

This 6-hour on-demand webinar led by Stephen Sideroff, PhD, was originally broadcast live on November 16-17, 2023.

Access information, handouts/resources, and continuing education credits information will be available immediately after successful registration. All registrants receive unlimited access to the recording for 365 days.

Psychotherapists have always been specialists in helping stressed out clients. But these days, stress seems to be a growing epidemic.

Psychologist Dr. Stephen Sideroff brings over 40 years of experience as researcher, clinician, professor, trainer, and consultant, and provides a comprehensive model of resilience and optimal functioning that can be integrated into your practice.

The core of this workshop revolves around Dr. Sideroff’s 9-Pillar model called “The Path” that helps clients overcome old, ineffective ways of thinking and improve their resilience. The model helps people deal with painful emotions and unfinished business, be more present in their lives, and feel more contentment with life.

In addition, Dr. Sideroff’s model provides an innovative approach to handling anxiety, stress, and stress-related symptoms, including those arising from autonomic dysregulation.

Therapists and clinicians will gain valuable tools to guide their client’s development across each of the 9 Resilience Pillars. Beyond understanding “The Path,” this workshop will address structural factors, such as evolutionary and developmental mismatches in adaptation mechanisms, which contribute to physical and emotional dysregulation, stress, and pain.

The benefits of this workshop extend to addressing physical and emotional symptoms while breaking through personal blocks that hinder success, ultimately optimizing overall health. A valuable tool called the Resilience Questionnaire will be taught to participants for quick assessment of a person’s Resilience Profile across the nine pillars of the model.

  • Identify and describe the nine components of the comprehensive model of resilience and success.
  • Assess one’s level of resilience along these nine dimensions using the Resilience Profile.
  • Identify and address two evolutionary and developmental mismatches resulting in impaired organismic adaptability.
  • Describe a tool that can be used for developing each of the nine dimensions of resilience.
  • Understand the resistance clients and others have in dealing with their stress.
  • Use the construct of “The Path” to support the commitment to developing greater resilience and to avoid feeling overwhelmed by stress.
