RL 102 - Psychological Body Armor: Secrets for Developing Personal and Professional Resilience
This one day course entitled Psychological Body Armor: Secrets for Developing Personal and Professional Resilience is designed to be the final word in managing stress and adversity. It goes beyond the notion of reactive stress management and employs the latest research on human resilience. The perspective and principles used are designed to not only help participants “bounce back” from adversity, but to develop a greater degree of protective “immunity” in the face of adversity. Furthermore, recommendations are made as how to helping others effectively adapt to, or rebound from, adversity.
It is generally accepted that in the wake of crises, traumas, even disasters, roughly 2/3 of people seem to lose their ability to function effectively, at least temporarily, but a unique minority of individuals appear to quickly adjust. They appear to possess some form of “immunity” to things that greatly distress others. In some instances, this unique group of individuals even appears to grow stronger from the stressful experience. In order to identify factors of resilience, research was conducted in an effort to build mathematical models of resilience. But mathematical models can only go so far. Therefore elite law enforcement and military personnel (including former US Navy SEALs) were surveyed and interviewed in order to uncover the “secrets” behind the numbers... the secrets of how to manage stress and develop resiliency.
This course is based upon social learning research and even more unique research that sought to identify the factors that seemed to convey protective resilience and foster rebound from adversity. Participants will learn what these factors appear to be and how they can be developed. Finally, participants will learn how resiliency can be used as a competitive advantage.
