Real-time Resilience Strategies for Coping with Coronavirus

We have entered challenging times, requiring us all to consider how our thoughts and actions might help or hinder our own resilience and that of those around us.

Dr Denise Quinlan and Dr Lucy Hone (co-directors of the New Zealand Institute of Wellbeing and Resilience Conference Convenors of WENZ – Wellbeing in Education NZ) have created a brief guide to coping in the days ahead, based on the best of science but also their own (reasonably broad) lived experiences of working in emergency management and resilience training programmes over the past decade.

Please see tipsheet, presentation slides and webinar below.
