The Concepts of Resilience

Author: Afton L. Hassett

Emerging research shows that chronic pain produces a substantial biological burden and can promote cellular aging and produce systemic biological wear and tear.

Afton Hassett, PsyD, discusses building resilience in patients, and focusing on what's right, instead of what's wrong.
