Podcast Episode 082: Appropriately Adapting to Change with Professor Andrew Martin


Today I am joined by Andrew Martin, Scientia Professor, Professor of Educational Psychology, and Co-Chair of the Educational Psychology Research Group in the School of Education at the University of New South Wales, Australia. In addition to his many accolades, Andrew has passionately dedicated his career to studying educational psychology. 

It’s through this study that Andrew has gained a remarkable understanding of the best ways to learn, grow and adapt. His insight is enlightening and informative, especially in the face of our current state of transition and change. In this episode Andrew offers his vast knowledge of learning to adapt and tapping into our capacity to be adaptable.

In my conversation with Andrew, I uncover:

  • What “adaptability” is from a psychological perspective.

  • How to adapt through the Coronavirus Pandemic.

  • Employing, facilitating and teaching healthy ways for children to adapt to change.

  • How to address children’s learning and adaptation at every stage of maturity.

  • The link between our ability to adapt and our wellbeing.

  • The difference between adaptation and resilience in the face adversity and change.

  • Strategies to adapt well, no matter what life throws at you.

Andrew so wonderfully explains the three key components we need to consider when we’re trying to adapt to change or new circumstances. He outlines the tools we need to regulate our reactions in order to adapt to our situation and maintain resilience in trying times.

Listen in to learn more about the significance of adaptability, how to learn the skills of adaptability and the role adaptability plays in creating thriving lives.
