Resilience relates to the ability to recover and bounce back from adversity and hardship. Resilient individuals demonstrate great flexibility, high energy levels, first rate mental agility and consequently can consistently perform at their highest level. They have strong relationships and robust support networks that help them to amplify their productivity and results.
Resilience factors can be boosted or enhanced and are regarded as protective against compassion fatigue. Following the publication of the Francis report in 2013 a call for action was issued to tackle the burnout associated with the constant emotional labour of caring and to support staff who choose to give their working lives to helping others.
Our exciting new training packages draw on the learning from our intensive Health Education England commissioned work on Resilience and provide unique opportunities for health visitors, managers and other practitioners from our partner organisations to benefit from recognising and fostering resilience within the workforce and in the workplace.
