Lockdown Mental Resilience - Mixed Mental Arts
ABOUT THE TRAINING

In 2020 we lost access to our social environments (e.g. work, pubs, attending birthdays etc.) and regular wellness rituals (gym, exercise classes, clubs, projects etc.) We are now in the midst of round three of lockdown, and this time it’s cold.

As individual and collective paranoia, confusion and overwhelm related to the pandemic intensifies, our psychological coping strategies are being put to the test. Only a tiny fraction of the adult population has any serious cognitive or emotional training whatsoever. Over half of the population have seen their mental health deteriorate, and the number of us experiencing depression is doubling.

It is vital that we equip ourselves with excellent cognitive, emotional and relational skills, to be resilient and navigate the pandemic skilfully. Lockdown Mental Resilience is a series of one-off, introductory sessions from Tough Cookie’s Mixed Mental Arts programme. Participants will be guided through a series of novel experiments to provide insight into how the mind works (and how it can work against us!). The training draws on the latest scientific findings from the emerging research field of mental resilience.
