Our 2022 Theme

Our 2022 theme, “Reframe Your Thinking: Resilience Reinvented,” is a challenge to reexamine how we think of resilience. ASHA members embody resilience. You teach resiliency skills to help your patients, clients, colleagues, and students, but never have you needed to embrace and draw upon your own knowledge and skills more than over the past couple of years. Resilience is not just an ability to learn from challenges and rebound, but an opportunity to use the foundational building blocks we all have that allow us to grow. The path to resilience is different for everyone and draws on our unique strengths, resources, and support systems. This year we are reframing, rethinking, and reinventing resilience by appreciating our skills, celebrating our discoveries, and taking pride in how we’ve grown, both professionally and personally.
