Event details

A range of factors have been linked to resilience, but are these equally important across all groups? Does student resilience differ from the resilience of older populations? Does resilience differ across cultures?

Psychologist Karisha George of the University of York explores resilience in modern times, examining the factors that affect how we handle contemporary challenges across the lifespan and cultures.

Join Karisha for an interactive talk.

About the speaker

Dr Karisha Kimone George is an Associate Lecturer in the Psychology Department at the University of York. She specialises in wellbeing and resilience but, originally from Trinidad and Tobago, she is specifically passionate about cross-cultural belonging. Her main aim is to support different populations in understanding how to enhance their levels of resilience and wellbeing, and to this end, has developed the Success at York toolkit – a resource for students at the University of York. As this expands, new resources for different populations are underway with the aim of empowering each and every individual to achieve their full potential.
