As the Covid-19 pandemic continues, it reminds us to remain vigilant about our health and wellbeing. Often we read or hear that we need to be resilient to get through this tough period. However, we all have a different definition of what resilience means to us. Is resilience, just carrying on in spite of everything? Is it emerging “stronger” in the face of adversity? Or is it a way of caring for yourself? Maybe it’s all these and more.

In this webinar, David, Anu and Miia will discuss their understanding of the process of resilience and draw on Gestalt thinking to identify a lifestyle approach to resilience. We will explore aspects of the Gestalt Cycle of Experience and use it as a framework which can be used to cultivate our personal resilience and support ourselves and our colleagues through uncertain times.
