The Resilient Community and Aged Care Worker




We all encounter stress and at times may feel tired and overwhelmed when working with difficult people, clients or situations that may challenge or make us feel pressurised in some way.

At the coal-face in most working environments there is an ongoing need for people to develop skills and techniques to build their resilience, manage everyday stress they face more effectively and look after hemselves better.

In short, to develop an ability to ‘bounce back’.  In today’s world, it is both the employee and the Organisation for which they work that must place self-care and resilience first, in an attempt to reduce burnout, increased trauma (in some roles) and daily stresses and challenges they face.

Target Audience

Anybody who works in the community – supervisors, co-ordinators, workers, managers.
