Real-world Resilience NEW


In a world of pop culture, sound bites and digital rhetoric there’s lots of rubbish written about resilience. But resilience is not ‘bouncing back’ – despite what some pop psychology articles would have you believe. Resilience is about ‘adapting well in the face of adversity’. And over the last 15 years we have learned what makes some people more resilient that others, and steps individuals (and groups and teams) can take to manage and reduce their stress levels and build and strengthen their resilience.

During this seminar, Dr Tim Anstiss will explore recent findings about resilience and wellbeing, and new ways to increase both. There will be a mixture of mini-presentations, small group discussions, self-assessment exercises - and optional ‘taster’ exercises that can be used to protect and improve everyone’s psychological health, wellbeing and resilience.

Who Should Attend?

Leaders and senior managers who want to protect and improve their own psychological health, their ability to adapt to adversity and the wellbeing and resilience of the people they manage, support and mentor.


The primary theme is ENGAGEMENT and the secondary theme is ORGANISATION.

It is relevant to the development of Resilience, Well-being, Stress, Health, Productivity, Psychology.
