“The term 'resilience' refers to a person's capacity to handle difficulties, demands and pressure without experiencing negative effects. Traditionally, social work has focused on the nature and impact of resilience in children and adults who have experienced traumatic events, but it is increasingly recognised that social workers need to develop personal resilience to manage the emotional demands of the job effectively and sustainably” - Gail Kinman and Louise Grant (2014), Developing Resilience for Social Work Practice.

Built from a foundation of positive psychology, this webinar will teach you how to equip yourself with strategies to develop the qualities that underpin resilience, such as self-awareness, time management, relaxation skills and empathy.

This practical webinar introduces tools, techniques and behaviours to manage our individual responses to effectively strengthen our resilience muscles - in the moment and ongoing.  

Who should attend? Allied health professionals who wish to build their resilience to strengthen their work practices, relationships and advance their Professional growth.

1.5 hours of CPD activity.
