Personal & Professional Resilience


Our lives are characterised by constant challenges for individuals, groups, and communities. In the South African context these challenging demands are caused by, among other factors, globalisation, the rapid pace of technological innovation, social and political change, violence, pandemic illnesses and most recently, the economic downturn.

The problem experienced in modern society is that certain individuals lack resilience and can therefore be unable to cope with the challenges and tensions of our everyday lives. We must learn to be change proficient, cope with unexpected setbacks and overcome unwanted adversities.
