The programme is a half-day programme from 10:00–13:00, and replaces the attendance CPD which was postponed due to Coronavirus, and will cover the seven BSAVA Regions who have not to date held one of these courses.
This programme is designed to equip participants with an understanding of the role emotional resilience plays in protecting our mental health. People with high resilience are less likely to develop clinical depression when faced with adversity in their life – and clinical depression is a major link to the risk of suicide.
Emotional resilience is mainly a learned behaviour, the chances are very high you initially reflected the resilience of your parents or early care givers. However, our level of resilience is not static, and we can take steps to increase our resilience and reduce our risk of developing mental health issues including clinical depression.
The programme is suitable for anyone who wishes to increase their own resilience and develop the ability to help others at work or at home. This course is designed for the whole practice team. Participants work in groups and no personal disclosures are necessary – although participants are welcome to discuss private issues after the programme.
