Building Resilience Workshop

The Building Resilience workshop follows our Introduction to Mental Health workshop and is suitable for any adults in regular contact with young people. It will support the creation of a ‘mentally healthy’ setting as well as specifically support staff working with young people/ children experiencing mental health difficulties. Based on the latest research we will explore the role that settings can play in supporting the development of resilience in children and young people as well as ways that you can integrate resilience building in to day to day tasks.

Course Summary

Delivered by mental health professionals, this two hour workshop explores the principles of resilience, giving consideration to protective factors and risk factors. Delegates will learn how they can better support the young people they work with, helping them to develop resilience and self esteem, increase engagement with learning and reducing the likelihood of long-term health issues. The workshop will provide practical tools that staff can share with their setting to promote resilience across the community. Delegates will leave feeling better equipped and more confident to identify those that need support and how to work with them.

This workshop can be tailored to meet your settings specific needs and provides a good foundation for modules in our enhanced portfolio. If you wish you will be able to deliver it yourselves it is part of our three day Mental Health Champions Train the Trainer programme. Once trained your staff member will have access to a range of workshops that you can use to enhance the knowledge of your whole staff team. Additional support and refresher training is provided through out the licence period.
