A few paragraphs on your subject:

How do people deal with difficult events that change their lives? The loss of a job, illness, relationship breakup and other traumatic events: these are all examples of very challenging life experiences. Many people react to such circumstances with a flood of strong emotions and sense of uncertainty.
Yet people generally adapt well over time to life-changing situations and stressful conditions. What enables them to do so? It involves resilience, an ongoing process that requires action and not reaction. It involves responding to life’s challenges and actively resisting against adversity.
Research has shown that people commonly demonstrate resilience in everyday situations. However more often than not it’s not something they’ve consciously learned. But has been a natural process they’ve picked up though their development.
The good news is resilience is a skill that can be improved and developed. And in this highly interactive practical introduction. You will quickly begin learning new skills in how to recover from any situation.
