What we covered
Welcome to the Forest session "The role of self-esteem in developing resilience." In this insightful session, we will explore the interconnectedness of self-esteem and resilience. By understanding the symbiotic relationship between these two crucial aspects of mental wellbeing, participants will gain valuable insights into how a strong sense of self-worth can enhance the ability to navigate and rebound from challenges, including criticism and rejection.
Self-esteem is our overall sense of self-worth and value. It encompasses how we perceive ourselves and our belief in our abilities and qualities. Individuals with healthy self-esteem are better equipped to handle the ups and downs that life presents, and this forms the foundation for developing resilience.
Navigating Through Challenges
In the workplace, maintaining a healthy level of self-esteem can be particularly important. Receiving criticism or facing rejection can be common occurrences, and having a strong sense of self-worth can help individuals navigate these challenges with greater ease. The ability to bounce back from setbacks and persevere through difficult situations is closely linked to one's self-esteem.
Building Resilience Through Self-Esteem
During the session, our dedicated professional, Zola, a Social Worker with a focus on supporting individuals in times of transition, will provide practical strategies for building and maintaining self-esteem in the face of adversity. By recognizing how self-esteem influences resilience, participants will be equipped to foster a positive self-image and develop essential coping mechanisms to navigate workplace stressors.
The Importance of Self-Care and Support
Developing resilience is not only about individual efforts but also encompasses the importance of self-care and seeking support when needed. Employing self-care practices and seeking out resources such as the October digital group sessions, assessments, and content about mental health can provide additional support in enhancing self-esteem and building resilience within the workplace.
