The course looks at how stress, change, uncertainty and triggers affect all of our lives personally and professionally. While a certain amount of stress is good for performance, too much can lead to a decrease in productivity and burnout.  

We will look at strategies for identifying stress, how we respond to stress and techniques for changing those responses to help build resilience. Based on the Salutogenic model of health, healthy coping strategies can build resilience regardless of our circumstances. Learners will create a personalised self-care and resilience action plan to take away from the session.  

Learning Outcomes 
  • Understand the science of stressors, the stress response and what we mean by resilience   
  • Explore the ABILITY acronym for resilience and how we can put it into practice in the workplace
