Resilience training has been shown to reduce the risk of depression and anxiety. Using evidence based interventions that are easily applied and taught, this course identifies strategies and insights that help strengthen resilience skills in young people. We will explore self-help tools that help them develop growth mindsets, nourish inner reserves, strengthen support, recover from setbacks and design resilient responses to difficult situations.
