How to be resilient in a world of change

October 14, 2020 @ 12:30 pm 2:30 pm

How can we remain resilient in a world of lockdown and social distancing, cancelled plans and uncertainty? How can we help others to stay resilient despite disappointments and isolation?

In this session we will consider physical, emotional, creative, spiritual and social aspects of resilience, with practical tips about steps we can take day by day to build resilience – even during a pandemic.

The workshop will be led by Dr Debbie Hawker.                                                                                                                                                                                                 

Debbie is a clinical psychologist. She and her husband support cross-cultural workers around the world. Debbie has served in over 30 countries, including several war zones. She has learned about resilience through observing how people thrive in difficult environments, as well as through research, and by being a parent! Debbie is author of eight books, including “Resilience in life and faith” (BRF, 2019, co-authored with Tony Horsfall). She conducted psychological research at Oxford University Psychiatry Department for nine years before moving to Nottinghamshire.
