Resilience of mind and body: recovering from setbacks in sports and mental health
Resilience is the ability to resist or recover from a negative stressor. Resilience is currently a major theme in mental and physical health. If we know how to build resilience of mind and body, we may be able to prevent collapses and overcome setbacks. For instance, (top-)athletes are regularly exposed to stressors like heavy training sessions, performance pressures, and it is important to determine when athletes can(not) recover from those stressors. Similarly, for patients struggling with recurring depressions, it is relevant to understand the mechanisms behind maintaining health and resilience, and the factors that may play a role in eroding their mental resilience.
In this Science Cafe, speakers Prof Claudi Bockting and Dr. Ruud den Hartigh will discuss these and other questions.
