What does resilience mean to you? How do you navigate change and challenge?
The idea of resilience is one of increasing importance, especially during times of difficulty. Resilience is foundational to engaging effectively with stress, as well as enhancing our capacity to cope with and recover from challenges. Most importantly, resilience is key in maintaining wellbeing. The good news is that resilience is not only something we already possess but something that can be strengthened over time. During this interactive workshop, participants will:
- Reflect on definitions of resilience and its importance
- Identify the three core components of resilience
- Learn about evidence-informed strategies and practices to strengthen resilience
- Learn about relevant resources and services that are available to support resilience and wellbeing
