This website is intended for people and professionals wanting to know more about personal healing and growth following a disability. Far too often, disability has been perceived and described as a negative event but it doesn’t have to be that way, especially given the fact that many learn to view their situation in a much more positive light. Positive coping following disability means that people learn to deal with, move past, and rise above their situation so they can strive to create the life they seek.
Dr. Stuntzner is the Director of Accessible Education at Southwestern Oregon Community College and Part-time Lecturer for the Rehabilitation Services and Counseling Program at University of Texas Rio Grande Valley located in Edinburg, TX. Dr. Stuntzner is passionate about helping people find their way to a better place following disability and working with people as they learn new ways of coping and living life when disability is a part of it.
Dr, Stuntzner is adding to this mission by expanding her services to include
c. Trainings about disability; resilience, forgiveness, self-compassion, and the interrelatedness of these three approaches [AKA: The Therapeutic Triad] especially as they relate to positive coping; resilience and forgiveness interventions designed and created for people living with a disability and the experiences that accompany it and the professionals working with them.
