How to cope with life’s challenges and improve well-being

Resilience is when a person uses their strengths and skills to manage life’s challenges.

We all need resilience skills to help manage the stresses of life and this is particularly important to consider for a person with a learning disability. This half day training will look at how resilience can be developed and consider areas such as confidence, self-esteem, self-efficacy and the roles they play in resilience.

Anybody wanting to learn resilience skills to support others or themselves will find this training hugely inspiring and life-changing.

What we will cover

  • What is resilience and how does it affect good mental health and well-being?
  • Understanding confidence, self-esteem, self-efficacy and how they differ.
  • How do these topics affect a person with a learning disability?
  • Boosting resilience – taking a holistic approach to thinking about resilience and putting it into practice.

Course aims

This course is aimed at anyone who wants to get a better understanding of how to develop better resilience skills for themselves or others. It will also cover how this can apply to people with a learning disability.
