Adult Emotional Resilience Courses
Our adult emotional resilience course is funded by Cumbria County Council and is a 6 session course featuring a range of topics covering wellbeing. The topics build a person’s emotional resilience and sessions are interactive and flexible to the groups needs.
The course can be delivered over 6 weeks of one hour sessions or we can adapt to the needs of attendees (for example we could do three two hour sessions or two hourly sessions per week).
Session prices start at £1 per person with a minimum of 15 attendees. Each session is supported by a workbook which combine to form a wellbeing toolkit.
Train the trainer is available for this course- you can become a trainer and roll the course out.
