Building Resilience

The ‘Building Resilience’ programme is driven by the latest in evidence based practice from both the world of musculoskeletal pain and injury as well as mental health. The programme is unique in that it attempts to link the negative effects of poor mental health on our physical health and vice versa.

The course is delivered face to face through a combination of group discussion, presentation and debate. The programme content is designed to challenge its participants to think in a different way about their health and of course to improve how they can become more physically and psychologically resilient.

The course is split into the following sections:

  • Understanding Resilience
  • Knowing your limits
  • Movement Variability
  • Graded Exposure
  • Pain education
  • Psychological Flexibility
  • Thought Challenges

The course can be delivered over half a day or a full day with either a single or double delivery. Get in touch for more information.

Manual Handling Plus

Manual Handling is often an essential training part of the work place but the evidence for its effectiveness is rather poor. Manual Handling Plus is driven by the latest evidence from the world of health and safety, biomechanics, physiotherapy and psychology.
