Resilience is the ability to handle change, stressful working environments and high demands without becoming overwhelmed, stressed or burnt out. Resilience, it could be argued, is the single most important skill needed to help individuals cope well during these difficult times.
During this session individuals will build a collection of tools and skills that will help them cope better with stress, anxiety, relationship issues, social pressures, and difficult emotions like anger and fear. By finding better ways to cope with these, there’s less danger of them developing into more serious mental health problems, meaning a better chance of staying well, whatever the job – and life – throws at them.
