The Life Connections program aims to educate individuals to become more aware of their inner resources and build resilience – the ability to withstand stress and catastrophe.
Resilient people are able to apply their skills and strengths to cope and recover from problems and challenges, which may include job loss, illness, financial problems, medical emergencies, divorce or the death of a loved one.
Themes covered in this program include needs, goal-setting, relationships, self-esteem and optimism. Participants gather practical tools to help them bounce back quickly from setbacks, and to feel more connected with themselves, their families and the wider community.
Life Connections is run over a 6-week period with 2.5-hour weekly sessions and is suitable for any adult age group.
