    Family Resilience

    How resilient is your family – really?

    Do you all bounce back from adversities and setbacks quickly? Do you gain inspiration and more motivation from your accomplishments and successes, or are they quickly brushed aside with little positive impact?

    In reality is your domestic environment more a case of:

    • Sad sons
    • Depressed daughters
    • Anxious adults

    Resilient Minds takes an evidence-based approach to these issues and the science is clear that very little of this is genetic.

    Home and family are where a lot of accidental learning takes place and children learn habits of thought that create self-fulfilling prophecies e.g.

    • “I’m hopeless and will never succeed”
    • “Everything always goes wrong”
    • “This has completely wrecked my whole life”

    The highly esteemed Dr Martin Seligman talks about a psychological vaccine against depression coming from the way people think about life events. Unfortunately, the thoughts above are like the virus and they are taking that person down the slippery slope of depression.

    There is a way to change the outcome and that comes from using a robust and effective process of building new habits of thinking.

    Call us for more information on how our science-based system will build more resilience into your home and family.


    What people say: SEE ALL TESTIMONIALS

    “I’ve received a promotion to run the company’s largest branch, & the techniques you taught on your course played a large part in me getting there. I’m (almost) unflappable & very little gets me down these days. Oh joy!!”

    Matthew - Sales Centre Manager

    “I found the tools provided by this course astonishing, and despite being on countless courses over the course of my career, this one was truly a much different proposition. Jamie focuses on the principles of emotional intelligence, delivering the tools that some of us need to truly stretch our capacity for an enhanced mental resilience capacity, and a more optimistic frame of thinking. I observed how powerful his message was amongst all the course participants, and although I rated myself as pretty tough mentally, I gained much.”

    Andrew - Director, Financial Markets Company

    “It was great fun and very informative. I highly recommend the ‘Attitude is Everything’ seminar and the application of the concepts helps me to improve at work and home.”

    Darren Wallis - Chief Executive Officer, G.J. Gardner Homes

    “What I liked most about the ‘Resilience’ programme was the attitude shift from a pessimistic outlook to optimistic with tools that are practical and usable. I highly recommend this programme because the material is based on proven scientific research.”

    Rob Penney - Head Coach Canterbury Rugby Football Union 2006 to 2011

    “The way Jamie presented the ‘Attitude is Everything’ seminar was fantastic. I was taking it all in because of the enthusiasm of it all. I highly recommend the seminar as the ideas and strategies can be easily used by any person and the application of concepts helps me to improve at work and home. I think it gives great inroads to help people achieve the things they are capable of by changing their thinking.”

    Lance Irving - Managing Director, Smith & Sons Franchisee, Christchurch

    “What I liked about the “Learned Optimism and Resilience” programme is that the content is practical, simple and easily applicable. It made a positive difference to how I perceive events in my life. The programme has enabled me to take more ownership of successes, while dwelling less on adversities that we face. I am now more conscious and better equipped to model positive, optimistic behaviour and language. I highly recommend the Learned Optimism and Resilience Programme as it makes a difference.”
