The Science of Resilience
July 7 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm£5
Resilience is now understood in psychology as something that is learnt. We are not born with resilience. Psychologists have studied the traits of resilience, and we can now teach these in a way that can be adopted by everyone. Resilience is correlated with happiness and wellbeing, and this workshop explores how we can become more resilient in the face of difficulty.
This workshop answers the following questions:
- What is resilience?
- Are we born being resilient, or is resilience learnt?
- What makes up a resilient individual?
- What are the underlying mechanisms behind resilience?
- How can we adopt these traits?
- How can I take short practical steps to make this work for me?
Following the workshop, and using the neuroscience of resilience, we will then be running a 5 Day Resilience Challenge – 5 days of building resilience:
Day 1 – The science of breathing and the resilience of the nervous system
Day 2 – The power of gratitude and focus in determining resilience
Day 3 – 7 questions to improve your resilience
Day 4 – How discovering and focusing on your strengths is correlated with resilience
Day 5 – Mindfulness and how to rewire your brain for resilience
