    • Stéphane Dandeneau - Cultural and Community Approaches to Resilience

      01:23:06

      from McGill Transcultural Psychiatry Added 32 0 0

      Until recently, the concept of “resilience” was conceptualized and studied at an individual level. However, many of our “individual” characteristics and traits stem from social-ecological sources such as our community, our cultural beliefs and worldviews, and the context and times in which we currently live. Our constant interaction with our social-ecology greatly shapes who we are and how we think. To fully understand and appreciate the resilience process in which a person or a group is engaged, we must consider their past, current, and future social ecologies. This presentation will share different approaches to trying to understand the cultural and community sources of resilience. It will present methodological options for investigating social-ecological resilience. Finally, ways of sharing resilience through the different knowledge translation mediums used in the Stories of Resilience Project will be presented. Stéphane Dandeneau, PhD, is currently assistant professor of psychology at the Université du Québec à Montréal. After completing his PhD in social psychology at McGill University, Stéphane worked on the Roots of Resilience Project at the Culture and Mental Health Research Unit, Jewish General Hospital, during his postdoc. Stéphane has broad interests in social psychology, social-cultural psychology and the underlying social cognitive processes of social resilience. His first line of research investigates the links between self-esteem, social stress, and attentional processes involved in perpetuating psychological insecurities. His research examines ways of training people with low self-esteem “high self-esteem-like skills” such as inhibiting social rejection which is shown to buffer against social and performance threats (www.selfesteemgames.mcgill.ca and www.mindhabits.com). His research also investigates sources of resilience and definitions of resilience from an Aboriginal perspective using a community-based approach with the Roots of Resilience Project (www.mcgill.ca/resilience). The current hegemony of individualistic conceptualisations of resilience in today’s literature overshadows other, more eco-centric, conceptualisations. Using a combination of qualitative and quantitative methods, the project aims to develop a more culturally-appropriate model of resilience as well as showcase the many different facets of Aboriginal people’s strengths.

        Cool dive in the Kahnawake Quarry in Châteauguay with some friends :) The water temperature at the surface was 73 F and at 35 ft it was 63F. Outside was around 80F. It was a beautiful sunshiny day and the dive was at a max depth of 35 feet. P.S. The song is "Pumped Up Kicks " by Foster The People, but I don't own the rights of this song even if I paid on it on iTunes. Buy it if you like! :) Thanks again to Richard for the extra stage for my buddy Marc and thanks also to Michelle for the generous lift! :) --------------------------------------------------------------------------------­-------------------------- Plongée sympathique à la Carrière Kahnawake à Châteauguay avec un groupe d'amis :) La température de l'eau en surface était de 73F et à 35 pieds elle était à 63F. On a eu droit à une splendide journée d'été avec un max de 26C. Merci encore à Richard pour son cylindre stage prêté à mon buddy et merci à Michelle pour le transport! :)

                The goal of the Resilient Voices of Kahnawake Projet was to identify Kanien’kehaka sources of strengths and we promised to return this information to you in an innovative way and do so with the assistance of a local Community Advisory Group. This subproject specifically identifies ways that Kahnawa’kehro:non, or Mohawks from Kahnawake, of different generations communicate resilience. By resilience, we mean ways that people get through challenges and obstacles in order to be well in life. Nia:wen’ko:wa to everyone who has participated in this project.

                  I have wanted to visit Kahnawake Pow Wow for the past several years I made the trip on July 10, 2011 I was glad I did. It was a wonderful event full of beautiful colours and friendly people but hot actually very hot temperature was 32c and high humidity with very little shade available. The ceremonial dress is beautiful in details and colours I felt bad for the dancers as they must have been boiling under these lovely outfits.
