Stuntzner and Hartley’s Life Enhancement Intervention: Developing Resiliency Skills Following Disability

Publisher: Counseling Association of India
Resilience Title Page

Stuntzner and Hartley’s Life Enhancement Intervention: Developing Resiliency Skills Following Disability (2015) is a 10 – Module intervention developed to teach persons with disabilities information and skills related to resiliency and disability. The skills taught have been well-documented as those that are related to resiliency and to coping well with a disability. The skills covered do not represent all of those that may help people become more resilient, but they were carefully selected due to their duo-relationship with resiliency and adaptation to disability.

Each module is delivered in a designated sequence so that people may first learn about resiliency and its relationship to disability. Modules 2 through 5 build from this foundation and teach people about the connection between their thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. Modules 6 through 9 are typically more abstract than the first five; therefore, a solid foundation in understanding the relationship between one’s own thoughts, feelings, and behaviours may be helpful before launching into the latter skills. The intervention concludes with an opportunity to review, assess, and fully integrate skills learned throughout.

The intervention was developed so that it could be delivered to groups, but professionals are encouraged to decide if and when the information may be used on an individual basis as well. Since resiliency is an individualized process in that different skills may resonate with people, it is more important for professionals to consider those that are most relevant to the people they counsel.

Each module consists of targeted goals, educational and experiential activities, opportunities for reflection, and additional work to be completed on one’s own time. However, the intervention has overarching goals and these provide people with an opportunity to (Stuntzner, 2015, p. 7):

  • enhance awareness of the skills they use to cope with life and disability-related situations.
  • determine which skills are not helpful.
  • learn new skills to improve their coping abilities and sense of resiliency.
  • apply the skills learned to a specific part of their life.
  • develop and integrate skills that can help them overcome challenging situations.
