​Resilience – A Mental Toughness Program

This course is also available to be facilitated off-site at your work location. To arrange this, please contact

This program provides participants with the framework to not only effectively deal with adversities but to thrive in a constantly changing environment as well as everyday life situations.  It is a highly interactive workshop on applying the concepts from Science-Based Positive Psychology Tools that build Resilience and Mental Toughness.

Prior to attending the training participants must complete both a pre-reading and the VIA Survey of Character Strengths which is a simple online self-assessment that will be utilised in the face-to-face component of the workshop. Further information will be provided upon successful enrolment.  

Participants will get the most from this program if they:

  • complete the pre-course work prior to attending the program
  • are open, engaged and willing to try new things
  • are willing to contribute to group discussions and open to the experiential nature of the training
  • share information about their own Character Strengths
  • are comfortable participating in pair and group activities that allow them to build upon their own personal resilience and mental toughness toolkits 

After successfully completing this course participants will receive a statement of training.
