Promoting and Teaching
Skills and Habits to Increase Resilience

What is resilience? When we are more resilient we feel good and function well in our everyday lives. We are more able to cope with setbacks both big and small. Resilience increases our ability to be physically and mentally healthy, perform well professionally and personally, thrive and flourish in good and more difficult times and generally enjoy a better quality of life.

Research tells us that the things that we do and the way that we think affects our ability to be resilient; there are practical skills that can be learnt, but they take practice.

Empowering Young People
to Develop the Skills and Habits Resilience

What is resilience? When we are more resilient we feel good and function well in our everyday lives. We are more able to cope with setbacks both big and small. Resilience increases our ability to be physically and mentally healthy, perform well at school or work, thrive and flourish in good and more difficult times and generally enjoy a better quality of life.

Research tells us that the things that we do and the way that we think affects our ability to be resilient; there are practical skills that can be taught, but they take practice.

Why promote & teach resilience?

The skills of resilience have to become habits and that’s not easy.  Improving resilience has some similarities with getting physically fit – you don’t do it once and then forget about it – it requires constant attention, focus and effort.

So in the same way we think about physical fitness, we can promote and teach the skills to be mentally and emotionally healthy. If we develop the habits that increase our resilience we can make the most of opportunities that life may send our way and deal with difficulties as they arise.

How do we do it?

We have curricula and a wide range of training programmes to support you.

Much of what we learn and how we live is influenced by those around us – parents, teachers and other significant adults for young people and our leaders and peers as adults. If the skills of resilience are being used and modelled in everyday life they get noticed and passed on. So we ensure that anyone who is interested in increasing the resilience of those around them also considers how to increase their own.  Our approach is based on this simple premise – if we want to pass on skills of resilience to others, apply them in our own lives first.

Research tells us there are many ways to increase resilience and wellbeing – here are some of the themes that we focus on:
