Shortened - 2 hours

This training provides an engaging introduction to the process of resilience through the context of The Resilience Doughnut model. Participants get hands on with The Resilience Doughnut, as a practical tool to build resilience during life's inevitable ups and downs, and with those experiencing adversity or facing a period of transition.  

Standard 3.5 Hours (including a short break)

This training covers everything from the basic version but explores the external Resilience Doughnut factors and inner competences in greater depth and includes more opportunity for practical application and discussion. These is also the opportunity for participants to apply The Resilience Doughnut relating to and individual they are currently working with.

Extended 7 Hours (including short breaks and lunch)

This training covers everything from the standard version but takes a closer looks at thinking skills and personal strengths. In exploring core thinking skills associated with resilience, participants examine how each thinking skill relates to The Resilience Doughnut before practicing simple strategies to promote more resilient thinking habits; through our everyday interactions with those we support and through structured exercises. In exploring personal strengths, participants explore how recognising, appreciating and building existing strengths, along with the role of intentional experiences and relationships are essential in personal development and resilience.
