Developing Resilience in Young People
Young people are facing unprecedented amounts of challenge and stress; this along with a natural dip in wellbeing and lack of internal resources can lead to the development of long term mental health problems. We know this is very worrying for people supporting and working with teenagers. Practitioners and teachers report dealing with increased levels of anxiety, panic attacks, depression and self-harm amongst young people. This combined with a lack of access to support for young people, can leave practitioners feeling powerless to help the young people they work with.
Through our extensive experience in supporting young people to prevent mental health problems, we have identified supporting young people to become more resilient is key to reducing these problems and improving wellbeing.
We have combined our experience of working directly with young people, with our unique approach to evidence based professional development to enable practitioners and teachers build resilience in the young people they work with.
This one-day training course enables you to learn how to effectively support young people to develop the internal mechanisms and learnable skills of resilience. When using these skills as part of your practice you are supporting young people’s ability to effectively manage the challenges they face, and supporting them to improve their emotional wellbeing and reduce mental health problems.
