Clinicians tend to be highly resilient and we cope well most of the time, but research identifies healthcare professionals are high-risk groups for stress-related harm and as the pressures they are facing are increasing.

Everyone is resilient to varying degrees, yet everyone can become even more resilient. This workshop explores resilience as a concept, but also shares practical ways that leaders can build resilience in themselves and others.

By the end of the one-day workshop, delegates will be able to:
• Identify what resilience is and key factors in the workplace that undermine it
• Explore and prioritise effective ways of managing patterns of behaviour
• Develop strategies to manage negative emotions
• Actively encourage resilience strategies in the face of adversity


This workshop is suitable for all staff at all grades; clinical and non-clinical.
