It is also a good fit for anyone wanting to strengthen resilience skills in their own life.

The course is recognised by the Association for Coaching for 20 hours of CPD (Continuing Professional Development) training time.

About the trainer

Dr Chris Johnstone, one of the UK’s leading resilience trainers, has 40 years experience in this field. After a first degree specializing in psychology, he graduated in medicine with distinction in 1986. He trained as a GP, then moved into the mental health field. For many years he ran a groupwork programme in the NHS teaching resilience skills.

Influenced much by Positive Psychology, he trained with Martin Seligman, and in 2005 started teaching Positive Psychology at Bristol University. For his work pioneering the role of positive psychology training in the workplace and education, he was included in the Independent on Sunday’s ‘Happy List’ of leading contributors to wellbeing in the UK.

His books include Seven Ways to Build Resilience (published in 2019) and, co-authored with Joanna Macy, Active Hope – how to face the mess we’re in with unexpected resilience and creative power (published in 18 languages and revised in 2022).
