List of resources
The personal resilience resources are organised in layers, following the structure of so called ‘seven roots of resilience’, named like that by psychiatrist Henry Emmons, each linked to practices that promote well-being, and that can improve an individual’s capacity to recover after a disturbance. Three relate to the physical body; two relate to the mind and the emotions; and two relate to compassion and connection. You can find the resources relating to those three categories below.
Types of documents include:
Inquiries – longer explorations of several aspects of a topic.
