Experts Interviewed

Jamie Aten, Ph.D., Founder and Executive Director of Wheaton College’s Humanitarian Diaster Institute, is the author of the just-published book A Walking Disaster: What Surviving Katrina and Cancer Taught Me About Faith and Resilience. This month his blog is featuring discussions with prominent researchers about how resilience is related to the areas they study. The researchers he’s interviewed so far are experts in forgiveness, humility, and survivor’s guilt. Without question, their insights are worth keeping in mind if we want to become more resilient. I’ll be monitoring Dr. Aten’s blog and will post an update in a few weeks provided that more noteworthy content is added to it.
