The Resilience Project

The University of Canberra is committed to the ongoing development of our alumni communities wellbeing through programs that make a difference. We want you to be the best you can be, both at work and at home.

As part of our 2021 wellbeing program we have embraced The Resilience Project.

The Resilience Project explores evidence-based approaches to building resilience, in order to develop and sustain positive mental health.

Their highly engaging presentation outlines The Resilience Project strategies, Gratitude, Empathy (kindness) and Mindfulness and discusses simple ways you can practice these in your daily life.

The session will be presented by Hugh van Cuylenburg, a renowned and inspiring speaker.

Resilience is the ability to bounce back from adversity. It is a necessary skill for coping with life’s inevitable obstacles and one of the key ingredients to success.

Having resilience minimises the effect that negative, stressful situations can have on us. These skills allow us to face challenges, learn from them and apply these skills so we can live a healthy life.

Digital Wellbeing Series

The Resilience Project Digital Wellbeing Series consolidates the learnings from the presentation and is the perfect program for the remote working environment.

The series consists of 10 x 2-3 minute videos which each address a key factor to wellbeing through a storytelling approach. Each video is accompanied by communications that highlight the research and accessible ways to practice in everyday life.

Topics covered will be: Gratitude, Empathy, Mindfulness, Emotional Literacy, Devices, Social Connection, Living with Purpose, Healthy Eating, Sleep & Exercise.

The videos will take place as a webinar each week, with screenings on the following days/times:
