Adult Resilience Program

Adult Resilience Program

Resilient people are more capable of dealing with stress, achieving goals and managing emotions. They have the ability to think positively about themselves, the world and others even when times are tough.

Adult Resilience: Strong Not Tough is an interactive evidence-based program that gives adults and young people from ages 16+ the skills to cope effectively with the many challenging situations we all encounter throughout our lives. Adult Resilience: Strong Not Tough is your own personal policy to protect yourself from experiencing overwhelming emotional distress, which can affect all areas of your life if not managed.

Just like the developmental milestones children experience, adults continue to experience many life changes.
