Resilience is what gives us the psychological strength to respond and adapt to stress, daily challenges and more significant life events in a healthy and positive way. Resilience needs to be maintained and sustained so that we can draw upon it, replenish it and never fully exhaust it.
This workshop acknowledges the realities of the systemic pressures experienced in modern life and explores the required skills and approaches to minimise their negative impact. It will explore how we develop, maintain, adapt and sustain our resilience in order to preserve our wellbeing in demanding times.
This workshop is also available to attend in person - register here.
