The Society for Acquired Resilience was formed in 2020 by a group of like-minded colleagues. It has a formal infrastructure, and aims to be a viable learned society in the traditional sense.

 The Society has held two scientific meetings AR2020 (9-11 March) and AR2022 (27 -29 September), both COVID-affected. They were based in Sydney, in the headquarters of Double Bay Sailing Club, but with significant contributions from overseas speakers, by ZOOM.

  • Another meeting is planned for 2024, probably in the USA – active planning has begun. Details will be considered by Council in mid-2023. For what it might look like, see the plans for AR2022 (details here)
  • A podcast series on the latest in AR. Following models pioneered by others, an initial series/season of five interviews/panels. And if that is successful, maybe another season, and another.
  • A special issue of a neuroscience journal, on AR. Peer-reviewed but with the reviewing constructive and supportive. This is being negotiated by JS, who intends the volume to be inclusive – many ideas from many people.

So, renewed activity on three fronts. Time to rejoin!
