Your Training Description

Resilience is more than bouncing back from stress or trauma. When bouncing back means getting back to ‘normal’ we aren’t giving space to process how stress or trauma change us. Self-reflection, growth in discomfort, and doing things differently starts with you. Explore how different kinds of resilience help or hinder dealing with adversity. Learn about the Ripples of Resilience model as a method to facilitate self-awareness, truth telling, and power sharing. You’ll be better able to support young people with healthy strategies to handle stress.

Your Learning Objectives

  • Learn about different forms of resilience and the role they play when facing adversities
  • Gain new awareness of stress, and its impact on you and the young people you work with
  • Explore strategies for you and young people to build personal resilience and stretch beyond comfort zones to motivate growth
