The course is made up of 4 units, each will require approximately 2.5 hours of study.

Unit content is guided by professionally recognised theory and evidence:

Unit 1 - What is Emotional Resilience?

Within the first unit you will explore the definition of Emotional Resilience. Emotional Resilience is a term that you may be familiar with, but quite unsure about its meaning; using examples from popular culture, you will reflect on the importance of emotional resilience and the many forms it can take.

Unit 2 - How to Develop Emotional Resilience

In the second unit, you will be introduced to theoretical perspectives relating to how emotional resilience can develop, from a focus on individual traits and internal/external resources, to studying emotional resilience as a fluid process, influenced by experiential factors.

Unit 3 - Reflective Frameworks for Emotional Resilience

Unit 3 focuses on several models of reflection that can assist and structure the process of reflecting on a learned experience. An interactive scenario exercise will allow you to put these models into practise, applying knowledge and enhancing your reflective skills.

Unit 4 - Reflective Supervision

In the final unit, you will be introduced to the concept of reflective supervision, with access to a role play to enrich your understanding. You will also have the opportunity to consider the possible emotional impacts and benefits of reflective supervision in relation to developing emotional resilience.
