Resilience Fundamentals @ Parramatta
Time & Location
About the event
The International Resilience Institute Sydney's (IRIS) learning model is based on prominent and recent research in the area of resilience, which tells us two key things:
- Resilience is not innate – it can be learnt; and
- A person’s resilience increases as one continually applies resilient thinking and behaviors in their everyday lives
IRIS RESILIENCE FUNDAMENTALS workshop is inspired by some of the great authors in this (and related) fields including such notable theorists as Albert Ellis, Tim Beck, Suniya Luthar, Richard Tedeschi, Lillian Comos-Diaz, Anthony Kidman and Karen Saakvitine. However, our program is most influenced by our readings into the works of Martin Seligman, Karen Reivich and Andrew Shatté (someone our team had the pleasure of tutoring under in Pennsylvania some years back).
Through a process of retrospective learning you will master eight fundamental strengths that will not only improve your resilience but will also help you to regain joy into your life professionally and personally.
Our strengths have been inspired by the published works of the American Psychological Society in this area and include…
Strength 1 Making Connections
Strength 2 Managing Icebergs
Strength 3 Optimizing Your Thinking
Strength 4 Understanding Optimism (Accurate Thinking)
Strength 5 Keeping Perspective
Strength 6 Expressing Emotions
Strength 7 Applying Empathy
Strength 8 Choosing Your Battles
The learning outcomes in an IRIS consulting approved RESILIENCE FUNDAMENTALS workshop is very individual as your personal learning outcomes are guided by two private psychometric assessments undertaken before the course commences.
