Enhancing Resilience

The concept of resilience has become a popular topic of discussion, learning, and practice in recent years. The idea of “bouncing back” from traumatic events has become imperative for first responders and others who provide caring services and ministry during and after critical incidents. Included in the concept of resilience is the ability to adapt to adversity, to cope in the face of distress, to be flexible in unusual circumstances and even to see opportunity in challenges. Spiritual Resilience may be described as the ability to use values and beliefs, a sense of hope and purpose, to sustain oneself through the difficult challenges of life. It is the soul’s ability to feel shalom in spite of difficulty and distress, through times of want and need, maintaining the sacred spaces of wholeness and well-being. In this course, learn how spiritual resilience has transformational power – the ability to change you from being negative, hopeless, resentful, depressed, mistrustful, and feeling insignificant. Crisis responders who practice habits of the heart strengthen their spiritual resilience in the face of adversity.
