Recovering from injury to body or mind.
As we set out to explore the theme of resilience for this issue of Yale Medicine, we learned that it comes in all different forms. We look at a woman’s recovery from a stroke and a dancer who overcame a career-ending injury and now cares for other dancers. Microbiologists describe how microbes survive not as individuals, but as populations. Child psychiatrists help children who have confronted violence. And faculty and students describe moments in their lives that led them to dig deep into their own stores of resilience.
