Learn resilience-building techniques to help your children, or help yourself, through times of difficulty.
You may have heard that resilience is about “bouncing back” after an experience of failure or adversity, but did you know that you can “bounce” forward?
In this presentation we will discuss definitions of resilience, ways to respond resiliently to life’s challenges and consider what it means to cultivate the resources that are the foundation for resilience. Additionally, we will learn the importance of having a growth mindset AND opportunity mindset when facing stress which together build our failure tolerance, a key ingredient in resilience.
