What is resilience?



THERE ARE TWO TYPES OF RESILIENCE MANAGEMENT

Corporate management of Resilience and Personal management of Resilience.

We only offer Personal management of Resilience in which we specialise by way of offering resilience building and personal development to individuals of all ages.

There is ,however, a link between the two types in that the first type can, in an event eg flood, fire etc cause trauma for the individuals affected by such events such as losing their accommodation and this is where we assist by helping the individual to manage the resilience which they need to overcome such traumas and in these cases we, sometimes, work with the Social Services regarding, for example, temporary accommodation. We also have a joint working relationship with local Organisational Resilience companies thereby offering a complete service.

Resilience gives persons the psychological strength to cope with stress and hardship. It is the mental reservoir of strength that people are able to call on in times of need to carry them through without falling apart. Psychologists believe that resilient individuals are better able to handle such adversity and rebuild their lives after a catastrophe and they are able to adapt well in the face of adversity.

Dealing with change or loss is an inevitable part of life. At some point, everyone experiences varying degrees of setbacks. Some of these challenges might be relatively minor (not getting into a class you wanted to take), while others are disastrous on a much larger scale as listed on page 1. How we deal with these problems can play a significant role in, not only the outcome, but also the long-term psychological consequences.
