Course Overview


This course enables and empowers learners with practical tools and an action plan to build a positive mental mindset and increase their awareness of their own state of mind. Models will be provided that can be applied in everyday life as well as in the workplace. The main aspects of this course are focused on cultivating a resilient mindset, looking after yourself, managing the work–life balance, and building and sustaining your resilience strategies.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understand the risk factors for stress, anxiety and depression and what the characteristics of a stress-hardy mindset (commitment, challenge and personal control) is
  • Understand the importance of self-talk - optimism/pessimism
  • Take personal responsibility for their career and wellbeing
  • Understand the difference between surviving and thriving (what things do ‘successful’ people do)
  • Understand the importance of emotional factors on yourself and others
  • Gain practical coping skills to take back to the workplace
  • Implement a positive action plan.

ZOOM Virtual Classroom

Our virtual classroom consists of a facilitator teaching the class to students who are dialled in remotely to the class session. Presentation slides and other digital files can be presented during the training session using the Zoom platform and the student may either focus on these resources or the facilitator. 


To enable connection, you will require the following set-up:

- Sufficient internet connection – Zoom is successful on a 4G network. Any network better than 4G will enhance the student’s experience;
- A PC with a web-camera, microphone and the capacity to run the Zoom application to allow the facilitator to better interact with students in the same manner as a traditional classroom; and
- Sufficient sized monitor or screen
