What Ant Man Can Teach Us About Resiliency and Relationships

About this Training

Often overlooked for more than one reason, Scott Lang (AKA Ant Man) may not seem like an obvious character to look towards when we think about resiliency or healthy relationships. However, Scott’s journey includes navigating struggles associated with incarceration, reintegration to society, divorce, and being a successful and supportive member of a blended family. Join us as we dissect the psychology and story of Scott Lang, what it means to reintegrate into society after being in the American correctional system, and how he navigates the various barriers of divorce and raising a child.
