Resilience is the capacity of a person or a community to resist to the shocks of life and to bounce back despite unsettling events.

In order to develop resilience, this training takes a “competence approach”. Various resilience models focus on psychological, social and practical skills that reinforce one another systemically. These capacities enable a person, a group or a region to access their own resources, face challenges and come out stronger from demanding situations.

Resilience is a key competence today. In this seminar, participants will learn about the characteristics of resilience and the many tools that put it to action.
