An integrated model for building resilience

In a working world filled with wellbeing programmes aimed at reducing stress and improving morale, many of us are just enduring work rather than enjoying it. To really solve the problem, we need to work upstream of the symptoms and learn (or just remember!) how to build our resilience and thus handle the pressure. This session will explore an integrated model for building resilience, looking at three factors: cognitive, behavioural and relational; and exploring key elements within each. You’ll leave with practical ideas that can be quickly implemented to start rebuilding your own, and other’s resilience.”
