Bounce Back: Promoting Resiliency in Children and Youth
Dive into a topic that’s gaining in both evidence and curiosity... Resiliency! Our hosts Char and Michelle speak with Lynne Godfrey (parent and grandparent) and Dr. Linda Uyeda to explore resiliency, understand its connection to mental and physical health, and cultivating resiliency in children and youth!
Lynne Godfrey has worked with the FORCE (now FamilySmart) and is currently the project lead for the Surrey/North Delta Local Action Team for CYMHSU. She is a mother and a grandmother who actively promotes resiliency on a daily basis in her own family and knows the value it can bring to the lives of children and youth.
Dr. Linda Uyeda (shown above) is a family physician who works at several Fraser Health youth clinics and the Forensic Psychiatric Hospital. Her own personal journey into work on resilience began 15 years ago with the birth of her first child. Like many new parents, she questioned advice she was receiving from family and friends and turned to the scientific community for answers. She expanded her medical education to exploring neuroscience, parenting, and mindfulness practices and was pleasantly surprised at what she found. After incorporating this information into her own family and medical practice with immense success, she has begun educating parents, counselors, teachers, and physicians about what she has learned.
