Strong Not Tough – Adult Resilience Program 

Supporting adults to navigate workplace and daily life pressures with improved resilience allowing them to flourish.

Strong Not Tough: Adult Resilience has helped the lives of thousands of participants by giving them the tools to become more resilient. It incorporates approaches drawn from Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) Mindfulness and the Positive Psychology movement.

It is generally accepted that work is a positive and protective factor that contributes to our well-being, but in some cases work demands, relationships and organisational change can lead to people experiencing anxiety or depression which impacts their ability to function effectively in their daily lives and at work.

Delivered across 5 sessions (10 hours) by experienced facilitators, the training is broken down into four sections – LIFE

  • Learn to be mindful
  • Inner helpful thoughts
  • Feeling like a resilient person
  • Enjoying a healthy lifestyle

The program increases coping skills and resilience by showing participants how to be more aware of their thoughts, feelings and behaviours and equipping them with the skills to help them with relaxation, mindfulness, reframed thinking, communication, conflict resolution,  and positive actions.

This program has been delivered successfully to individuals in a group setting and in work and community settings – schools, aged care facilities and corporate settings.

ABOUT STRONG NOT TOUGH ADULT RESILIENCE PROGRAM

Adult Resilience

How does this program help?

Mental Health issues are currently the predominant factor impacting workplace absence and long-term work incapacity in Australia. For each individual experiencing depression the cost to an organisation is in excess of $8000 per person each year. Stress related compensation claims in Australia are in excess of $200 million per annum in Australia.

When you then consider the impact of poor mental health on workplace productivity, relationships, retention rates and turnover, it makes sense to adopt a preventative approach to mental ill health that includes evidence based professional development that supports improved resilience in and outside the workplace.

It is generally accepted that work is a positive and protective factor that contributes to our well-being, but in some cases work demands, relationships and organisational change can lead to people experiencing anxiety or depression which impacts their ability to function effectively in their daily lives and at work.

The Adult Resilience course arms participants with the skills they need to cope with these life changes and difficult situations so that they can do their best and easily transition into the next phase of their life.

The Strong Not Tough Adult Resilience Program provides participants with the tools needed to cope with these causes of stress. Backed by years of research, the Adult Resilience course is proven to help participants be the best they can be, and impart to them many skills and tools, such as:
