Event details

In today’s world, resilience seems more important than ever. But what exactly constitutes resilience and what can an individual do, given the limitations imposed by the societal context?

Mental health expert Christina van der Feltz-Cornelis of the University of York explores resilience in the workplace based on the international EMPOWER project. A collaboration between researchers from nine different countries - the UK, Australia, Belgium, Finland, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain and Switzerland – the project aims to reduce work stress.

Join Christina, the UK lead for EMPOWER, and discover what the power of individual and team resilience in the workplace can be.

 Find out more about the European Platform to Promote Wellbeing and Health in the workplace (EMPOWER).
