Building resilience for our students (On Demand)
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 development of resilience
- How we build resilience in ourselves and others
Those who have the capacity to build attuned relationships with tamariki and rangitahi, and the desire to increase resilience in them.
Hi Kathryn - just wanted to say thanks very much for your excellent presentation on building resiliency in our kids last Fri(!) evening, really engaging and very interesting.
Took away a number of key points and real life changes I can immediately put into action / apply to bringing up my currently 3.5 year old daughter so much appreciated!
