This e-book is a selected review of the main psychological theories and frameworks that underpin the concept of resilience. The book also contains a ‘toolkit’ that points to ways in which individuals can develop psychological resilience.

A series of straightforward exercises and tips accompany the chapters, which are designed to help you understand the key components of resilience. At the same time, the exercises will help you to build your own individual resilience and/or that of a project-team, which you may be part-of (either physically in a work-space or virtually at home).
