Resilience and the application of psychology to the world of work

“Great workshop, really informative and helpful. Left feeling really positive.”

“It has helped me build resilience strategies that are both useful in my personal and professional life. A thoroughly enjoyable and useful course!”

“Very enjoyable and useful. Good balance of discussion and activities.”

Collaboration

We’re collaborating with the Psychology joint honours degree programme at Nottingham Trent University to support final year projects aimed at extending the knowledge base about resilience and the application of psychology to the world of work.

Task

The students are tasked with conducting literature reviews on a range of industry-related questions set by local businesses. Findings from their projects are then presented at a university conference and the businesses draw on this information to further develop the services they provide. Examples of past projects include:

How does stress impact on work performance, productivity, sickness absence rates, presenteeism and staff relationships?

What are the factors affecting participant uptake and application of learning within group psychoeducation training?
