This courses forms part of a series of sessions exploring mental health. Learn how mental health conditions manifest and what the symptoms look like, what might be the causes and learn some practical ways to manage some of the symptoms to help you or those around you cope better on a daily basis. This course focuses particularly on building self-esteem and resilience - what can cause poor self-esteem and low confidence, different levels and some tips to help people be more able to cope when things do get difficult.
This Building Self Esteem and Resilience course in Sevenoaks will introduce you to some of the key concepts associated with developing self-esteem and building resilience.
By the end of the day students should be able to:
1) state what is meant by self-esteem and resilience
2) recognise the effects of low self-esteem
3) understand the factors that contribute towards resilience
4) use a variety of methods to develop and build positive self-esteem and resilience
General broad ideas will be shared and discussed amongst the group. There could be some sharing of personal experiences. This course is not a replacement for personal therapy and this element will be carefully managed by the tutor.
