George Bonanno is professor of clinical psychology, Director of the Lost Trauma and Emotion Lab, and Director of The Resilience Center for Veterans and Families at Columbia University’s Teacher’s College. George’s research focuses on resilience in the fact of loss and traumatic events.
Most of us have the natural tools to deal with extreme adversities in our lives. We cope well when extreme things happen to us. To deal with the world around us, it takes a repertoire of behaviors. Sometimes, this involves what George calls “coping ugly.” Sometimes we might need to do something that doesn’t seem pretty but is reasonably effective.
