CHADD, resiliency and Mark Katz

Last day of CHADD. Yes­ter­day, we had 2 great pre­sen­ta­tions by Dr. Torkel Kling­berg on Cogmed work­ing mem­o­ry train­ing pro­gram, RoboMemo, very well received by a large audience.

Today, many meet­ings on exec­u­tive func­tion­ing, work­ing mem­o­ry train­ing, frontal lobes, and even dopamine, with the Cogmed team, some of Cogmed´s licensees such as Dr. Arthur Lavin from A Work­ing Mind, and Mark Katz, a clin­i­cal psy­chol­o­gist from San Diego very involved with CHADD, help­ing ADD/ADHD kids and adults for many years.

Mark Katz and I had a great con­ver­sa­tion on resilien­cy and emo­tion­al endurance. We will talk more about it in this blog, but in sum­ma­ry he is writ­ing a new book on the impor­tance of ¨turning points¨that enable all of us, includ­ing peo­ple brought up in dif­fi­cult con­texts (with many risk fac­tors), over­come life dif­fi­cul­ties by attach­ing new mean­ings to our expe­ri­ences and our lives, devel­op­ing a sense of mas­tery, and find­ing at least one area in our lives where we can suceed and build self-con­fi­dence around.

Enjoy the evening
