Mark Towfiq stashed this in Kaizen
John Woodall is a psychiatrist whose work has taken him to Bosnia, New Orleans, Uganda, and to New York City after 9/11.
In all of these places, his work has been with people recovering from widespread trauma. His area of interest is resilience. One of the terms he uses is "suffering successfully." By some odd stroke of fate, Woodall makes his home in Newtown, Conn. His resume looks like he has spent his entire life preparing to be useful in his own hometown.
What is the key to resilience? Time and patience.
