#89 Keynote Address by Dr. Steven Southwick



Format option:
.mp3


Dr. Steven Southwick received an MD from George Washington Medical School in 1980. He completed his psychiatry residency at Yale University School of Medicine. He is the Glenn H. Greenberg Professor of Psychiatry, PTSD, and Resilience at Yale University Medical School and Yale Child Study Center, Medical Director of the Clinical Neuroscience Diversion of the Veterans Affairs National Center for PTSD, and Adjunct Professor of Psychiatry, Mount Sinai School of Medicine. His interests include the psychology and neurobiology of psychological trauma, PTSD, and resilience to stress. He has worked with a wide range of trauma survivors including combat veterans, civilian children and adults with PTSD, and very high functioning stress resilient former prisoners of war and active duty Special Forces soldiers and Navy Seals.

Along with coauthor Dr. Dennis S. Charney, Dr. Southwick’s latest book, Resilience: The Science of Mastering Life's Greatest Challenges, has recently been published. 




Most of us at some point in our lives will be struck by major traumas such as the sudden death of a loved one, a debilitating disease, assault, or a natural disaster (including the current global pandemic). Resilience refers to the ability to 'bounce back' after encountering difficulty. This book provides a guide to building emotional, mental, and physical resilience by presenting ten factors to help anyone become more resilient to life's challenges. Specific resilience factors such as facing fear, optimism, and social support are described through the experiences and personal reflections of highly resilient survivors. These survivors also describe real-life methods for practicing and benefiting from the resilience factors. As resilience is the complex product of genetic, psychological, biological, social, and spiritual factors, the authors investigate resilience from multiple scientific perspectives. They synthesize the latest literature on the topic, describe their own research on resilience, and quote from their interviews with highly resilient people.

Dr. Southwick delivered the keynote address to the 22nd World Congress on Viktor Frankl's Logotherapy, held in June 2019 in Dallas, and gave LogoTalk Radio his kind permission to record and present his remarks.


Viktor Frankl and the Book for Job: A Search for Meaning by Marshall H. Lewis with foreword by Alexander Batthyány is now available from Pickwick Publications.

“A bold and ambitious reading that respects the text of Job as much as it does the texts of Frankl, the book uses Frankl to construct a new hermeneutic of reading.”
— C. Fred Alford, Professor Emeritus, University of Maryland, College Park, and author of After the Holocaust: The Book of Job, Primo Levi, and the Path to Affliction.

“It is destined to become a classic both due to its original line of thought and the rarely found blend of sensitivity and knowledge so impressively present throughout its chapters.”
— Prof. Dr. Alexander Batthyány, Endowed Viktor Frankl Chair for Philosophy and Psychology, Liechtenstein.
