Earth Talk with Chris Johnstone and David Peters: Personal Resilience for Me, You and Us

Wednesday, 11 September, 2019 - 20:00

The learnable skills of personal resilience strengthen our capacity to deal with difficult situations - whether in our own lives or the world - and rise to the occasion. This talk explores ways to cultivate resilience in ourselves (me), in other people (you), and within the teams, groups or communities we belong to (us).

Chris Johnstone has been teaching resilience skills for over thirty years, pioneering the role of resilience training in mental health promotion, coaching practice and the workplace. His books include Seven Ways to Build Resilience and Active Hope (co-authored with Joanna Macy). He teaches online at CollegeOfWelbeing.com, his video-based online course Personal Resilience in an Hour having students from more than fifty-five countries.

David Peters is founder/director of the Centre for Resilience at the University of Westmister. He previously worked for many years as a family doctor pioneering the role of integrated medicine at the Marylebone Health Centre in London. He has co-authored six books, is a former chair of the British Holistic Medical Association and edits the Journal Of Holistic Healthcare.
