Part of my educational philosophy is to break down the barriers between knowledge and access. Following this idea, I have created open sourced white papers that highlight key ideas, concepts and practices that I use in my work. These works are based on the conceptual frameworks within behaviourisms and humanistic psychology. My intention is to contribute to information sharing that is research informed and readily available to everyone.

In this paper I cover my basic theory of resiliency in the form of the five pillars. I also include a discussion around stigma and the importance of self-compassion. I explore the notion of personal wellness as a means of showing up for ourselves and others.

Here I explain resiliency as it progresses through seasons of great uncertainty. This paper is chalked full of examples and discussions about learning through difficult times, the importance of self-care, and letting go of narratives that do not serve you. I include an exercise for Fear-Setting (Ferris, 2014). I also revisit the five pillars of my resiliency model with a focus on micro-habits for wellness and productivity. I close with a ‘personal-expert weekly score card activity’ that I often use with others in my practice.
