Resilience

Resilience is a person’s ability to ‘bounce-back’ from problems, difficulties and life challenges without any long-lasting negative consequences.

In life we can all expect to have our fair share of difficult times, for example when losing a loved one or when suffering ill health.

Everybody has a different level of resilience and this is why some people are able to cope better than others when experiencing similar problems.

So what makes a person more or less resilient?

Resilience is a combination of biological, psychological and social factors.

Whilst there is some evidence that a part of being resilient is passed on genetically, the greater part of resilience comes from the quality and nature of our social experiences and interactions during our early developmental life.

Developing Resilience

We all have, more or less, a certain amount of resilience ‘inside’ us that we can use when facing problems, but for those who have been finding it difficult to cope, we recommend following our CORE programme.

This course is a wholly scientific, evidence-based training programme which examines and then changes the core beliefs that form the most important foundations of resilience, especially our Locus of Control.

These core beliefs set the stage for the subsequent development of our ‘rules for living’ which we use to negotiate our day-to-day experiences and our ability to cope is directly intertwined inside these beliefs.

By learning how to change those core beliefs we can change how we feel and respond to any situation in a way that is more ‘useful’ for us, or, in a more resilient way!

The CORE CBT Programme for Resilience

The CORE CBT Programme was devised and written by Paul in 2020 and combines all the best elements of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy with additional knowledge drawn from research in Personal Construct Theory, Attribution Theory, Self-Determination Theory and Social Constructivism.

It is a 10 module course normally taken over a 10 week period with weekly hour long counselling sessions (either face-to-face or using Zoom), but can also be followed as a ‘teach yourself’ course for those with more manageable mental health challenges.

It is specifically designed to help improve resilience to life problems.
