|Facilitator Reproducible Self-Assessments, Exercises & Educational Handouts Resiliency has been defined as the ability to manage lifeâ€™s challenges, stresses, changes, and pressures effectively; cope and adapt successfully to adversity; bounce back to a balanced state after facing a major disruption in life or career.
Resilient people are able to adapt successfully under adverse circumstances such as: poverty, mental illness, disasters, terrorism, physical or psychological trauma, divorce, job loss, prison, loss of a loved one, parentâ€™s divorce, prolonged stress, physical or sexual abuse, or a lack of safety. Resiliency, or a positive behavioural adaptation, is critical when people encounter any type of trauma.
The Building Resiliency Workbook contains five separate sections to help participants learn more about themselves and how to build resiliency which will enable them to thrive in times of adversity, change and stress.
