This podcast is all about you! We’re sharing our conversation with resilience and emotional intelligence expert Kristin MacDermott who says anyone can learn resilience, emotional intelligence and conflict management and she shows us how. She is the founder and President of the MacDermott Method, which provides resilience-based resources for individuals and organizations. She is a licensed marriage and family therapist with over a decade of research in resilience. Her resilience-training programs have been validated in four studies with researchers from the Duke Clinical Research Institute, Duke Cancer Institute and the National Institutes of Health. They have also been published in peer-reviewed journals, and her methodology has been shown to improve key mental health and resilience outcomes, including anxiety, depression, distress, conflict management and PTSD.
We think you’ll agree she part of the Crazy Amazing Humans (CAH) tribe because she has taken her expertise and applied it to help others by designing resilience-training programs for some of the highest-performing people on the planet and beyond; including Navy SEALS, LAPD, schools, corporations, non-profits, and mentors who support at-risk kids. Kristin is the co-founder of Pathfinders, an Aspen-based nonprofit dedicated to improving the lives of people living with cancer as well as those experiencing grief. She also helped start Zero Hour Expeditions, a nonprofit that helps combat veterans reintegrate into civilian life and overcome the effects of PTSD by experiencing 30-day wilderness trips.
Kristin is the author of It Takes Two Minutes to Shift Your Mindset and Build Resilience, a book that breaks resilience down into bite-size skills you can apply to your life immediately. She has recently launched two online courses for parents, one called Resilience-Based Parenting and the other called Parenting Through Divorce. She has a private practice in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida where she lives with her husband of 28 years and her three children.
