In this interactive workshop, you will get to explore some of the pressures facing young people today and learn about ways to take the pressure off and to look after yourself. We will also look at how to recognise your own strengths and how you can use these to boost your resilience.
What is resilience?
There’s been a lot of research into what resilience is – most people describe it as our ability to ‘bounce back’ from the challenges we face. Resilience is a quality that anyone can develop to help them learn, grow and cope in tough times. At its core, being resilient is when we learn from the adversity we’ve faced and take that learning with us to help next time we face something difficult.
Why Learn About Resilience?
There’s research that suggests resilience is something you can learn, and that it can protect you from developing mental health difficulties. We think that practising being resilient can help you to thrive through the tough times, which can’t be a bad thing! Resilience happens in different ways for different people. It’s not something that always stays the same – in some situations we might be more resilient than others.
