The Skills of Resilience for Young People

When we are more resilient good things happen, we feel good and function well in our everyday lives. We are able to cope with difficult situations better and stay focused on the things that matter to us. Being more resilient is not just about managing difficulty its also about making the most of opportunity and realising our potential. Resilience increases our ability to be physically and mentally healthy, perform at our best, increase our capacity to thrive and flourish and generally enjoy a better quality of life.

There are many factors that impact our ability to be resilient, but just knowing about resilience is not enough, we need to know how to be more resilient. That’s where we can help.

Why promote & teach resilience?

To give us a greater sense of control and confidence in our ability to cope with challenges, not to react unhelpfully as things happen, regulate our emotions, think more flexibly and accurately and seek help and support when needed. Developing resilience has similarities with getting physically fit – it requires focus, constant attention and effort. The skills of resilience have to become habits and that’s not easy, they take practice to perfect, but the rewards are that we not only cope with life, we thrive and flourish. Schools are a great place for young people to develop their resilience skills.
