Build your emotional strength with a resilient mindset!
About this Event

The International Resilience Institute Sydney's (IRIS) learning model is based on prominent and recent research in the area of resilience, which tells us two key things:

  1. Resilience is not innate – it can be learnt; and
  2. A person’s resilience increases as one continually applies resilient thinking and behaviours in their everyday lives.

IRIS RESILIENCE FUNDAMENTALS workshop is inspired by some of the great authors in this (and related) fields including such notable theorists as Albert Ellis, Tim Beck, Suniya Luthar, Richard Tedeschi, Lillian Comos-Diaz, Anthony Kidman, and Karen Saakvitine. However, our program is most influenced by our readings into the works of Martin Seligman, Karen Reivich, and Andrew Shatté (someone our team had the pleasure of tutoring under in Pennsylvania some years back).

Through a process of retrospective learning, you will master eight fundamental strengths that will not only improve your resilience but will also help you to regain joy in your life - professionally and personally.

Our strengths have been inspired by the published works of the American Psychological Society in this area and include…

Strength 1 Making Connections

Strength 2 Managing Icebergs

Strength 3 Optimizing Your Thinking

Strength 4 Understanding Optimism (Accurate Thinking)

Strength 5 Keeping Perspective

Strength 6 Expressing Emotions

Strength 7 Applying Empathy

Strength 8 Choosing Your Battles

The learning outcomes in an IRIS consulting RESILIENCE FUNDAMENTALS workshop is very individual as your personal learning outcomes are guided by two private psychometric assessments undertaken before the course commences.

This event will be co-facilitated by SHANE WARREN and KAIT LUKER.
