Resilience is the human capacity to endure, to overcome, adapt and be transformed by life’s adversities. This One-Day interactive workshop is designed to help you harness the power of your own Resilience and unleash your Potential.

Course Content

At certain times in our lives we can reach the depths of our own despair and at these times our future can appear very bleak, we can lose hope and everything seems pointless. What would it be like if at these times you could find a way to connect with your own power, strength, creativity, humour and imagination? What if you had a treasure chest of resources you had built up over time, stashed away and forgotten?

Areas covered will include:

  • Recognising the characteristics of Resilient People.
  • Understanding the Building Blocks of Resilience.
  • Recognising and Overcoming Obstacles to Happiness and Well-Being.
  • Building Positive Emotional Experiences.
