This course explores why some people are more resilient than others, how to build resilience and strategies to help deal with adversity.
During this course, you will follow the story of Zach, a student who is having a hard time at school. In each section, we take you through a further stage of Zach’s experience, and then ask you questions. In order to answer these questions, you will have research to do. In each case we have provided links to a range of articles and websites, which are accessed using the “Materials” tab. You will see this tab above the scenario details, and above the assessment questions.
By the end of this course you will be able to:
- Explain why some people are more resilient than others
- Apply methods of building resilience within mentoring programmes
- Create strategies for mentees to independently develop their resilience
