Resilience is the ability to positively adapt to and rebound from significant adversity and the stress it creates. Practicing resilience can help us get through the stress of the COVID-19 pandemic, and grow from the experience.

In most cases, resilience develops as we manage negative or challenging experiences in our environment. If nothing “bad” ever happened to us, we would probably never be able to develop positive resilience skills!

It’s a dynamic process and is enhanced with good coping strategies, and systemic supports. Those coping strategies include the ability to recognise stress, the ability to identify its real cause, accessing internal and external resources, and developing the skills required for emotional regulation.

What are the individual factors that contribute to resilience?

What can teams, managers and organisations do to help build resilience?

Using your EAP to develop skills in resilience 

Many employees access EAP when they are distressed due to unmanageable stress levels. However, you can also work with an EAP counsellor to develop skills in resilience. These skills will help promote well-being and protect you from stress risk factors.
