When faced with adversity in life, how do we cope or adapt? Why do some people seem to bounce back from tragic events or loss much more quickly than others? Why do some people seem to get “stuck” in a point in their life, without the ability to move forward?
Resilience is how well a person can adapt to the events in their life when faced with a tragedy, natural disaster, health concern, relationship, work or school problem. Being resilient doesn’t mean you don’t feel the intensity of the circumstances, event or problem, it just means that you have found effective ways of dealing with it.
Everyone can learn to improve their resilience. Like any human skill, learning greater resilience is something that you can do at any age, from any background, no matter your education or family relationships. To improve your resilience, you need to have the willingness to learn, and develop your understanding of and skills in resilience.
This workshop aims to develop your understanding of what resilience is and to practise your resilience skills so that you are better able to manage stress and hard times.
By the end of this workshop, you will be able to:
