Resilient Minds @ Work: Resilience Training for the Healthcare Sector

Course Description

The demands placed on us personally and professionally affect our health and business. In the past few months, due to the outbreak of the coronvairus pandemic in Ireland, the demands on the healthcare sector have never been greater. This increased pressure can lead to a higher frequency of stress, anxiety and a sense of burn-out. One way to address these emotional and psychological challenges is through resilience training. According to Richard Burke, resilience is a measure of your subconscious flexibility. By developing your resilience, you gain an awareness of useful practical and psychological coping mechanisms, which in turn will lead to a happier, healthier life.
