Psychological Resilience

Resilience is the ability to recover rapidly from setbacks, difficulties and stressful events.

How do we build resilience ?

We build resilience through developing psychological flexibility, which is the ability to initiate and sustain values guided action, and engage fully in life, through times of both ease and difficulty, through periods of both stress and calm.

The higher our level of psychological flexibility, the greater our resilience.

There is only one evidence based model that increases psychological flexibility and that is Acceptance and Commitment Training (ACT).

Our programs are based on over fifteen years of high-quality research into the use of ACT in the workplace. This research shows that ACT effectively increases psychological flexibility which leads to:

  • increased work satisfaction;
  • enhanced performance,
  • decreased absenteeism,
  • reduced conflict and
  • significant drop in bullying and harassment claims.
