  • Learn the basic concepts of resilience. The concept of mindfulness, sleep, finding meaning in life. I certainly already know them actually.

    What make me surprise is that the instructor stress the importance of external support and say the resilience is a social concept. Therefore, communication, problem solving and listening skills are also very important.

    An eye opening course and suitable for beginner. The instructor also include a 4-week planner. You always have something to do after the course!

    The certificate price is a little bit expensive considering it is a 2 week course and I have a little problem in verifying my identity (try several time and succeed anyway).

    I had a little knowledge about Resilience, I knew it was important but never had an opportunity to study further about it. So, when I saw a course about Resilience I decided to take it. I don't regret it. The course is concise, only two weeks, but explained everything important about resilience. It has changed the way I see it. The information is valuable and useful. I love the part about designing your life and the design thinking approach. I recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn about Resilience and how to apply it in their lives.
