Dr Brian Marien on Psychological Wellbeing and Resilience

How to Improve Psychological Wellbeing and Build Resilience for Coaching Clients and Leaders

Here is some of what Brian says about the day we have planned.

Resilience - the psychology of human behaviour

This session will provide an evidence-based approach to building psychological resilience. It will outline relevant insights drawing on the latest advances in neuroscience, medicine, cognitive, behavioural and social psychology. It will give insights, information and approaches highly valuable to coaches and leaders.

“So what?” It will address the relevance of psychological wellbeing highlighting its powerful impact on the performance of individuals and teams - the real world applications.

Clarity of thought and cognitive fitness. There is robust evidence showing how psychological wellbeing impacts on cognitive ability. Any reduction in psychological wellbeing has a powerful impact on a range of important cognitive skills - including concentration, memory, decision making, creativity and innovation.

We will also look at the impact of psychological wellbeing on physical health, how it impacts on wide range of neuro-chemicals and neurotransmitters. Psychological states change endocrine and immune function with major implications for our physical health, morbidity and mortality.

Behaviour change – recognising the potent impact of psychological wellbeing on human behaviour and how our mood states and emotions have a potent influence on how we behave, and strongly influence how we relate to, and communicate with, others. Our behaviour can also have major implications for those we work with – ‘emotional contagion’.

The final section will be addressing what are the ‘risk factors’ and what are the ‘protective factors’ around psychological health, what are the things that we know can improve psychological wellbeing. What can help people do to stay well and/or recover from distressing life events, set-backs or periods of intense pressure?

So what can you do about it? Develop a cognitive and behavioural tool-kit. It will introduce some evidence-based tools and techniques that you can use in your executive coaching.

This is a day to add these tools and stay leading edge in your practice.

Attending the day will give 7 hours CPD.

We look forward to welcoming you along to this day.  Places are limited so please reserve your place early. Call Sue on 07711 417653 to reserve your place.
