The SPARK Resilience course is an evidence-based programme that aims at developing resilience. Resilience can be defined as psychological flexibility, reflected through the ability to recover from stressors and to thrive despite and in face of adversities.
- The course consists of eight 90-minute sessions offered over the course of four weeks.
- The content of the sessions includes key strategies for emotional and behavioural regulation, as well as key concepts of positive psychology like character strengths, meaning, optimism, capability, and motivation.
- Training techniques include lectures, group discussions, individual reflection, guided mindfulness exercises and voluntary homework.
- The course is tailored for members of FUURT.
Please note that the nature of the course is psychoeducative and it is not intended as a therapeutic course. The course is not suitable for persons suffering from acute mental health issues.
The trainer of the course is Dr. Natalia Skogberg, a qualified SPARK Resilience facilitator and a research manager at the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare (THL), who has a wealth of first-hand experience in the ups and downs of the academic life.
