About the Course
We all go through periods of stress and many of us have also experienced some kind of trauma. This course is built to teach anyone how to build the skill of resilience, which can help to protect against the impacts of stress and trauma. Based on up-to-date statistics from governing bodies and relevant scholarly articles, this series is full of learner focused activities, live-filmed videos and attractive animations. By taking this approximately 1 hour course, we hope that you will not only understand the impact of stress and trauma on mental health and physical wellbeing, but also know ways to measure and build your own resilience.
