Introducing Personal Resilience Training
Stress is a normal human response to situations that seem threatening or difficult, whether or not they really are. Sometimes though, we experience periods of ongoing anxiety and distress, which leave us feeling extremely uncomfortable and diminishing our ability to function and perform well. In these times, these unhelpful feelings become self-perpetuating, due to what we can call an un-resilient mind-set. Fortunately, these mind-sets can be changed; we can enhance our wellbeing by learning straight-forward techniques for becoming more ‘resilient’, many of which will be introduced in this training course. Learning to build our personal resilience offers specific benefits such as:
- Greater self-confidence and optimism about ourselves and the future
- An enhanced ability to ‘bounce back’ quickly when times get tough
- Greater perseverance and satisfaction with life
- Improved performance in our work, study or personal lives
This training course is offered as a ‘taster’ programme introducing ideas, approaches and interventions that can help you take conscious control of how you respond to life and work challenges. Afterwards, you can decide how and whether to build on what you have learned to enhance your resilience and sense of wellbeing in the longer term.
Part A of the training focuses on understanding resilience and learning how self-awareness and developing a constructive, positive mind-set can boost resilience.
In Part B you will try out specific interventions that will help transform the habitual, negative thinking patterns that can trap so many of us in un-resilient states.
