How Resilient Are You?

How Resilient Are You?

Are you able to bounce back – to adapt well in the face of adversity?

Are there times when you:

  • React with blame or criticism?
  • See problems as unsurmountable?
  • Take negative comments to heart?
  • Feel isolated and unsupported?

Key factors of resilience are:

  • A positive view of yourself – with confidence in strengths and abilities
  • Capacity to make realistic plans and carry them out
  • Skills in communication and problem solving
  • Capacity to manage strong feeling and impulses

Functional Fluency is a straightforward and practical model to help you build your resilience.  Using the Functional Fluency model can help you to learn to respond more and react less.

 FF model from booklet

With Functional Fluency you learn to blend together the 5 positive modes of behaviour so that you can respond flexibly and effectively in different situations. You can learn to:

  • Treat problems as a learning process.
  • Avoid making a drama out of a crisis.
  • Develop realistic life goals for guidance and a sense of purpose.
  • Celebrate your successes.
  • Cherish social support and interaction.
