Research Summary

My research interests include: Creativity in health promotion teaching and communicating, Resiliency as a process that disrupts people out of adapted states of biopsychospiritual homeostasis which potentially prepares and readies them through states of humility to experience infusions of desired virtues and qualities. Resilience as “an innate force that progressively drives and guides people to increase their capacities by receiving infusions of desired qualities and virtues”.
