Stress and Resilience: Starting Well

The pressures of ministry can take their toll and can have a detrimental impact on physical health, mental health and in some cases can lead to burnout.

Participants will:

  • Understand what is meant by personal resilience
  • Increase their awareness and normalisation of common experiences of stress and burnout in themselves and in those around them
  • Be introduced to mirroring/vicarious trauma when caring for others
  • Explore coping strategies such as self-compassion, reframing, self-awareness and self-care
  • Develop skills that facilitate their own self awareness (eg. emotional intelligence)
  • Develop strategies to effectively manage/reduce stress in a personal thriving action plan
