Spiritual Tools for Building Resilience

A look at the current mental health crisis as experienced in schools. The possible causes of this crisis.  The original research in the 1960’s with developmental psychologist on ‘resilience’ in young adults. How This research maps onto the 500 year old practice of the Ignatian Examen. How this has been trailed by a school in Cannock, its surprising results and how it is free to implement and practice.  Finally, I suggest ways in which it can be rolled out and delivered to the whole school community.
