Resilience in Difficult Times

#Healthcare Provider

During the pandemic, many people feel a sense of anxiety and feel we have no control as the natural order of things have been disrupted. Building resilience reduces unease and promotes wellbeing.

This helpsheet provides simple steps to build the resilience of people in care.

The five steps outlined in the document examine:

  1. “No-one knows everything about this situation, so what are the things I know for sure? What can I do, based on that?” (MEANING MAKING)
  2. “What kind of approach or attitude do I want to have about this situation? Given that, what choices do I want to make?” (SENSE OF MASTERY AND CONTROL)
  3. “Who are the helpers in this situation? And who can I help?” (CONNECTEDNESS)
  4. “What feels familiar to me in this, given my knowledge, skills and past experiences? And what does that tell me I could do now?” (MY RESOURCES)
  5. “What can I learn from this? What will I do differently as a result?” (MY ACTIONS)
