What is personal resilience?
Personal resilience is about the way we manage stress and the challenges that life throws at us. It’s about being able to make positive adjustments in the face of adversity, to maintain our mental health during recovery and in everyday life.
Resilience is especially important to those who work in high stress environments where the impact of multiple events can build up. Single, unexpected life events can be equally debilitating, and it can sometimes be difficult to cope.
We all have some innate resilience, some more than others, but it is possible to develop resilience and to learn how our thinking and coping strategies can help us to fend off the effects of stress. There is good evidence to suggest that there is much we can do to help ourselves and our training will help you to develop positive strategies.
