When faced with setbacks, challenges and failures, why do some young people thrive while others simply survive? Experts agree, skills in resilience can be learnt and developed. This workshop asks students to identify their individual skills and provides tips and strategies on where and how improvements can be made to boost their resilience.
Skills outlined by Penn Uni, PERMA, the RULER approach, such as growth versus fixed thinking, taking risks and willing to fail, persistence, grit and embracing change, positive and optimistic attitude, accepting responsibility and self-control and being grateful and celebrating others as well as neuroplasticity, are all skills explored in the workshop.
Students who are deemed resilient will enviably face their futures with a positive attitude and a set of skills that support them in facing obstacles therefore allowing them to be their best selves and leaders of the future.
