Building Resilience, Bouncing Back (three-week course)

How do people deal with difficult events? The death of a loved one, loss of employment, world events and other traumatic experiences are all examples of very challenging life experiences. So, what can we do to help us cope? Resilience is a life skill that can be nurtured with increased understanding and this course aims to help students find their own personal strategy. We will be exploring what we mean by resilience, why we need it and how to develop it in order to bounce back from life’s challenges. Themes will include: finding perspective; emotional intelligence; purpose, values and strengths; and managing physical and mental energies.
