Resilience is the ability to cope with and recover from difficult situations. It includes our capacity to make the best of things, deal with stress and rise to the occasion. We all have this ability, though not always as much as we’d like.
The good news is that the last twenty years has seen breakthroughs in our scientific understanding of what helps resilience grow. Research has also shown that resilience training helps protect against the risk of depression, anxiety and stress related harm, while also strengthening our capacity to address challenges & prevent burnout. That’s why we’re setting up an online resilience training for counsellors and psychotherapists.
This may be for you whether you are a new therapist just starting out and wondering how to support your own self care whilst holding a practice or a seasoned practitioner recognising the need for burn-out prevention.
You may also be looking at how to support your clients and wondering if resilience skills could be a useful resource in the work.
We are developing an online training which we hope to launch this autumn and meanwhile look at our events page for other offerings.
