Genevieve Chandler, RN, PhD is an Associate Professor of Nursing who has a wealth of experience conducting resilience research with vulnerable adolescents and young adults from successfully employing a structured writing approach to increase self-esteem and self- efficacy to being a pioneer in recognizing the unique response of vulnerable adolescents to use protective behaviors that were heretofore interpreted as risk behaviors to promote their resilience. Her recent work testing the innovatiove Empower Resilience Intervention for young adults in higher education, community college and athletics fits with her expertise as a mental health clinical nurse specialist with a deep understanding and experience of developing engaged relationships.
