Dr Lucy Hone
Co-Director of NZIWR
While there are many resilience researchers in the world, the death of her 12-year old daughter in a tragic road accident, makes Dr. Lucy Hone's understanding of grief quite unique. She writes books, academic articles, columns and blogs to spread her insights far and wide.
Co-director of the New Zealand Institute of Wellbeing & Resilience and adjunct senior fellow at the University of Canterbury, Hone's research is published internationally and her PhD acknowledged for its outstanding contribution to wellbeing science.
Dr Hone’s work involves several projects helping people adapt to loss including her much-watched TED talk, Three Secrets of Resilient People, the best-selling book, Resilient Grieving, a blog for Psychology Today, and a recent collaboration with the BBC, the animation movie Invaluable Tools to Boost Your Resilience.
Hone's work has been featured by Swedish Television, The Guardian, New York Times, the Bolt Report Australia and TVNZ.
