Four Week Resilience Training Workshop
The four week resilience training workshop consists of:
Focusing on the Positive
We live in a deficit oriented society, that is, a society saturated with negative news and images. Learning to re-focus on what is positive, what is working, and what makes us feel good allows us to think more creatively and to cultivate a sense of inner well-being. You will learn to use positive questions to increase focus on the positive.
The bad weighs more than the good. We tend to be more aware of what we don’t do well than the positive traits we possess that allow us to do things well. Most people are not aware of their strengths. Knowing your strengths and using them increases well-being. You will learn what strengths are, how to identify your personal strengths and how to use them effectively.
ABCs of Resilience
To become more resilient, we have to understand how our thoughts impact our feelings and behavior. Contrary to what most people believe our emotions and behavior are not triggered by events, they are triggered by our interpretation of events. You will learn how your thoughts impact your feelings and subsequent reactions and how to think more flexibly to become more resilient.
Research tells us that social support is key to well-being. We tend to have an easy time empathizing with and encouraging others during bad times. But fostering relationships during good times is just as important. You will learn tools that will enable you to enhance your social support by responding effectively when good things happen to others.
