Emotional Resilience Workshop

Disclaimer: The information below and the content in 2020 Dreams Emotional Resilience Workshops are not to be regarded as professional therapy. 2020 Dreams Workshops focus on raising awareness and empowering young people to help themselves.

Emotional resilience is the ability to cope with challenges and setbacks. When young people have emotional resilience they will learn from and not be consumed by their failures. They will continue to grow and develop rather than being limited by negative experiences. They will also be more resistant to peer pressure and live by their own values.

Surviving the Challenges of Childhood

From dealing with conflict and adapting to changing classes to coping with bullying or even abuse at home, childhood presents young people with many challenges.

A 2020 Dreams Emotional Resilience workshop can help young people to develop the resilience skills they need to come through those challenges without losing their way or suffering from mental health issues.

Dr Ginsburg’s Seven Cs of Emotional Resilience

American paediatrician Dr Ken Ginsburg breaks emotional resilience down into seven elements: the seven Cs.

Competence

To become resilient, young people need to trust their own competence. When they are aware of their own strengths and are willing to be responsible for making their own decisions, they will be able to handle most situations.

Parents and teachers can help develop competence by not being over-protective and by being specific when feeding back about mistakes.

Confidence

Self-confidence is important for resilience and forms the hard core that will see young people through tough circumstances. Being specific with praise and being careful not to push too hard can help young people to develop self-confidence.

Connection

Strong connections to family and the wider community will help young people to develop strong values and avoid anti-social behaviours.

Character

Helping young people to develop a strong morality will give them another foundation for not only being resilient but also for acting for the greater good. Modelling compassion and avoiding stereotyping will help children to become adults who care for others.

Mental Health Workshops Was Captivating!

The students were completely captivated by the Mental Health workshops; they were designed to engage the student start to finish and did so perfectly. Each workshop provided real-life examples of how current issues could affect young people such as themselves, and how best to approach the issues if they do.

Contribution

When children and teens understand that the world becomes a better place through positive action, they will be more likely to draw strength and resilience through contribution. For this to happen, young people need the opportunity to contribute.

Coping

In many cases, young people act badly or make unwise decisions to cope with anxiety or other negative feelings. By teaching them more positive coping strategies, their emotional resilience will grow.

Control

To act decisively, young people need to believe that they have a measure of control in the outcome. Parents and teachers can help them to understand that every cause has an effect and that most negative situations are about choices that were made or not made – not random events.

How a 2020 Dreams Emotional Resilience Workshop can Help

A 2020 Dreams Emotional Resilience workshop will raise awareness of the importance of developing this quality and will create a space where young people can practice and explore the skills they will need to navigate tough challenges.

As with all 2020 Dreams workshops, our experienced facilitators will use techniques which have been shown to engage young people. These include role plays and open forum discussions. By allowing young people to develop their own skills and drawing on their personal experiences, the lessons learned will be more deeply embedded.
