      I hope that by learning more about the cognitive processes that underlie resilience and wellbeing we can develop preventative interventions that may help some people before some vulnerability factor becomes a disorder. Although, there is a lot of work that needs to be done to investigate the processes involved first (what we sometimes refer to as the basic science), before these interventions become viable.
