Welcome and Keynote

Playing a Poor Hand well: Instilling resilience in our children, families and communities.

Presented by Mark Katz, PhD 

Mark Katz, Ph.D., is a clinical and consulting psychologist in San Diego, California, and author of the book On Playing a Poor Hand Well, published by W.W. Norton and Company. In the book, Mark explores the lessons learned from those who’ve overcome adverse childhood experiences, and discusses ways of incorporating these lessons into our existing system of care. For the past 28 years, Mark has served as the Director of Learning Development Services, an educational, psychological and neuropsychological center in San Diego, California. The center is also home to the Resilience Through the Lifespan Project, a project dedicated to understanding the different ways in which people have been able to carve out meaningful and productive lives for themselves, despite having endured a range of adverse childhood experiences.
