Derek Mowbray's Guide to Personal Resilience Reviews


Guide to Personal Resilience I really like the design and ease of use. I have shown it to a number of customers and given Derek's details so hopefully they will be in direct contact. Second, I like the content. I like the exercises and I like the 360 degree approach to resilience which is what I talk about a lot. Finally, I appreciate Derek's material and how available it is use so thanks again for contributing to such an important area. Senior Clinical Business Manager Validium - Human Solutions - Trauma Management & Business Continuity What is this personal "resilience" thing and why should we care anyway? Having faced some big health challenges recently and taken on a new job, I decided to work my way through Derek Mowbray's Guide to Personal Resilience. http://www.mas.org.uk/publications/personal-resilience.html Ok, Ok, he's a Chartered Psychologist and you already know I have a bias towards psychology, largely because I am a psychologist by background and because I think there is ample evidence we need to learn more from psychology in health and social policy and the running of public services. But this stuff works. Mowbray takes you through a questionnaire on your own resilience, and helps you look at things like self-awareness, determination, your vision for what you want to achieve, your organization, relationships, interaction and problem solving and so on. He also gives 18 tips for resilience. http://jimmcmanus.wordpress.com/2013/06/29/what-is-this-personal-resilience-thing-and-why-should-we-care-anyway/ Director of Public Health, Hertfordshire County Council
