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.

Forgiveness Title Page
Stuntzner’s Forgiveness Intervention: Learning to Forgive Yourself and Others (2015) is a 7 – Module intervention designed to teach persons with disabilities information and skills pertaining to forgiveness. Each module is logistically sequenced to build on the previous one. The intervention was intended to be delivered according to a group format; however, professionals may decide to use it in more of an individualistic manner or to have people complete specific components or exercises as is most applicable to the reported situation or issue. Throughout the intervention, each module contains goals and activities for people to complete; however, the overarching goals as outlined in the intervention are to (Stuntzner, 2015, p. 12):
