Transition Series: Resilience in New Environments

Resilience describes our ability to bounce back from setbacks, whether those are big or small, and our ability to adapt in the face of adversity. When we feel resilient, it means we can pick ourselves up when we face unexpected outcomes or situations and keep going, or try again.

This workshops focuses on how we can create a sense of resilience, and utilise it when entering new environments such as starting at University.

In this workshop we cover:

  • What is resilience and what resilience at University looks like

  • How can I build resilience through:

  1. Re-telling stories

  2. Reframing ‘failure’

  3. Taking healthy risks

  4. Connecting to your why

  • What you need to feel more resilient

Participants will leave our Resilience workshop feeling more capable and confident with a clear understanding of how to increase their resilience in their new HE environment.

This series of workshops are suitable for any individuals either entering higher education, or currently experiencing a large degree of change in their life. The workshops are free for current students (or students enrolling in Sept 2021), and £20 for non-students. The workshops are for participants aged 18 years old or above.
