Course Description

The ability to bounce back quickly from setbacks is very important for happiness and success in life. This ‘bounce back ability’ is called resilience. Resilience is not something we are born with - but some people are naturally more resilient than others. Why is that? And how can we develop resilience in people. This course, designed for teachers will teach how resilience affects teenagers and what you can do to foster and promote resilience in the classroom. The course is full of practical resources, short learning quizzes and downloadable material for you to take with you.
