Practical skills for resilience

March’s Edge Talk was developed by Jodi Brown (@JodiOlden), Senior Improvement Manager of the Horizons Group, NHS England, and was led by Rosanna Hunt, Research Associate of the Horizons Team. It focused on ‘Practical skills for resilience’.

Jodi is a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and says,

We all have the ability to build on our resilience. The key is to understand our tendencies when faced with challenging situations, capture our unhelpful thinking patterns and make the connection between our emotions and subsequent behaviours.”

As change agents we all talk about personal resilience and ‘going for no’ but this can be tough when we encounter resistance, challenge or obstacles. Resilience helps us to recover more quickly from set-backs and reframe challenge as opportunity. This Edge Talk will offer really practical tools, techniques and insight to build our own personal resilience, including some simple steps we can all take to support our own well-being.
