Resilience, Character Building and Identity


Terri Morrissey, CEO of the Psychological Society of Ireland (PSI) presents ‘Resilience, character building and identity’ in this webinar recording. Morrissey highlights the importance of resilience and the development of mental toughness in supporting one’s ability to cope with uncertainty, changing and potentially distressing situations.  In this webinar Morrissey explores how to help young people develop resilience and how it relates to stress and wellbeing.  During her presentation Morrissey reflects on whether young people are presented with sufficient challenges to help them build resilience or if they are overprotected by parents/adults and significant others.
