Resilience Workshop

Resilience Workshop

sharing the tools to deal with those difficult days

WHAT’S THE INTENTION?

To create a space to learn new skills for self care, and new approaches for coping with life’s challenges: e.g. dealing with one of those days.

WHY ARE WE DOING THAT?

Everyone experiences low moods (brought on by stresses, worries, pressures, expectations, loneliness etc.). Life and work can be stressful: we can all benefit from learning to surf the waves.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

  • Added bounce – confidence in the face of adversity
  • Increased courage – fight, flight or freeze alternatives
  • Greater connection – ability to foster others’ support
  • Improved creativity – increases cognitive functioning
  • A sense of calm and control – feeling gently empowered

WHO’S IT FOR?

Anybody over 13 years of age.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Through activities and conversations exploring:

  • Emotions, states, and stressors in life.
  • The value and importance of self-care.
  • Discussions to identify stress indicators.
  • Sharing of practical approaches and successful tricks for dealing with triggers.
  • Challenging our habitual patterns, growing.

Lead with a gentle and warm, yet strong style to encourage solidarity, listening and acceptance.
