This section keeps you updated on any major developments throughout the course of the DynaMORE project.
The first results of how people are coping with the Corona crisis are in! Potential resilience factors, exposure to Corona-specific and general stressors, as well as internalizing symptoms were assessed online in 5000 adult Europeans: In comparison with other resilience factors, positive appraisal specifically of the consequences of the Corona crisis was the single strongest resilience factor. Positive appraisal style (PAS) was not only positively associated with resilience (p<0.001) but also mediated the positive association between perceived social support (PSS) and resilience (p<0.001). Resilience, as an outcome, was conceptualized as good mental health despite stressor exposure. Therefore, PAS and PSS can be seen as important modifiable protective factors that can be targeted by public mental health efforts in similar crisis situations in the future.
The corona crisis as a chance to strengthen your own resilience & to participate in resilience research: If you are 18 or older you can participate in our COVID-19 mental health study! If you like it, please also tell your friends, colleagues, and social network about it. Please select your language in the table below for more information. We highly appreciate your help. Let’s aim to spread this survey study faster than the virus & thank you for advancing our knowledge about human resilience in times of crisis!

The project newsletter appears twice per year and is a worthwhile read for anyone who is interested in stress resilience and resilience research. This time, we are summarizing major advancements within DynaMORE, introducing a lot of new team members, postdocs, PhD students, and collaborators, and present our latest publication and info brochure.
The 2nd DynaMORE General Assembly (GA) Meeting took place in Germany’s capital, Berlin. It was great to welcome new PhD students and Postdocs who recently joined the project, to receive demonstrations of the mHealth device and planned interventions, and to see brand-new data from all work packages!
A PhD position in the DynaMORE Horizon 2020 project is open at the Kalisch-Lab! Take this opportunity to work with leading empirical and modelling experts, following a unique multidimensional and longitudinal approach to prevent stress-related mental disorders and to boost natural resilience.
