Building Resilience for our Students (Webinar)

Professional development (PD) New Zealand (nationwide)

Posted: 17 December 2019
Notice reference #: 1HA40p

We use the word ‘resilience’ all the time. We all want to be resilient and to build resilience in others. But what does the word ‘resilience’ actually mean?

This session will use neuroscience, biology, and psychology to unpack what resilience actually looks and feels like. This way we can recognise when it exists, and also learn how to create/build it in ourselves and others.

We will also understand how our modern environment is often limiting the development of resilience. Through this recognition, we can take steps to mitigate this.

Rather than some major undertaking, building resilience is about ensuring we create multiple moments of tolerable stress, within a supportive, attuned relationship. And the exciting news is, that we are doing it, we are raising resilience every day in our environments. We just need to do it more explicitly and accurately. 

The information in this session will help us all, it is for ourselves and those we support.

What you'll learn:

  • What resilience ‘looks like’
  • What can impact the development of resilience
  • How we build resilience in ourselves and others

Target audience:

Those who have the capacity to build attuned relationships with tamariki and rangitahi, and the desire to increase resilience in them.
