Rebound resilience programme

Rebound is a free 4-week programme created to help you develop your personal resilience toolkit.

There’s never going to be a time when we don’t face challenges or changes in our lives. How we respond to these as they happen determines their long-term impact on our mental wellbeing. Thankfully there is plenty that we can do to take control of the situation so that we bend rather than break.

Resilience is both our ability to bounce back, or rebound, from adversity and our capacity to deal with challenging situations as they arise. The good news is that resilience isn’t something you either have or you don’t. It’s a set of thoughts, behaviours and actions that can be learnt and strengthened. With practice, everyone can master resilience.

The aim of this programme is to examine some of the research around resilience and introduce a variety of approaches to help you develop a resilience toolkit of your own. Something you’ll be able to draw on whenever you need it.

What you can expect from Rebound

The programme is self-guided with everything you need to take part delivered by email.

The weeks are themed around four key factors that affect resilience:

Wellbeing
Knowing how to look after your emotional and physical health, and manage your energy.
Self-awareness
Noticing your thoughts and feelings. Knowing your strengths and weaknesses.
Emotional agility
The ability to adapt your thoughts and feelings when they’re not helping a situation.
Connections
Knowing who is in your support network. Feeling connected to something bigger than you.

Each week you will get two emails containing:

  • a round-up of research related to the week’s theme
  • an invitation to reflect on where you are now
  • an activity to practice and add to your resilience toolkit
