"You have to ‘be’ before you can ‘do,’ and ‘do’ before you can ‘have.’” - Zig Ziglar
What is ‘Resilience’? Resilience in positive psychology deals with one’s ability in bouncing back when they are knocked down by life. Some people can become even stronger after experiencing the bad times. What differentiates a resilient person from the rest? Psychologists discover that personal resources, strengths and other positive capacities of psychological capital, such as hope, optimism, and self-efficacy, are the key ingredients of resilience.
Our Consultants, Matchy Ma & Katy Mok, designed the “Building Resilience Through Character Strengths” program and facilitated the session with a group of students from The University of Science and Technology. The program aims at supporting the students to cope with their adversity and understand their own character strengths so that they can become more resilient in stressful and challenging situations throughout their life journey.
