Bouncing back and going strong - building resilience and wellbeing
In 2020 our resilience has been tested like never before. How, when and where we work will likely change forever. The pandemic has caused extreme emotional stress for many; this is being seen in high levels of mental distress and mental illness. Experts are predicting mental health issues continuing to rise as Australian families face long periods of financial stress and underemployment from the fall out of the economic impacts of the pandemic.
This program of 4 interactive on-line workshops provides education, training, and tools to strongly support your ability to sustain resilience and support your ongoing mental wellbeing. Enrolment is open to women only.
This program is one of the ASF's more popular programs and early enrolment is encouraged to avoid disappointment as places are strictly limited.
As a participant, you will have the opportunity to deep-dive into your own resilience and mental wellbeing. You will complete evidence-based assessments, gain understanding and insight into yourself, learn easy-to-apply individual strategies to grow your resilience, enhance your mental wellbeing and build a personalised and motivating plan for your longer-term mental health. The facilitators will work with you to:
- Instil confidence that you have the internal resources to cope with day to day ups and downs as well as more significant challenges
- Embrace challenge and risk as a chance to learn and grow
- Stay poised in emotionally-charged situations and lift the spirits of those around them
- Feel in control of their work and life, as opposed to bit players or powerless observers
- Stay committed and focused on goals and outcomes when the going gets tough
- Build the self-belief to influence others in periods of volatility and uncertainty, developing the resolve to deal with conflict and difficult situations
This program is delivered over 4 consecutive weeks in 90-minute live virtual workshops. You will get the best out of this program if you interact and contribute in the sessions and commit to reflect and test ideas between sessions.
