5 Reviewing emotional resilience
Before ending your work on this course, take some time to review your Emotional Resilience Toolkit. This is intended to be a practical and realistic set of ideas that you can take into your first qualified social work role.
Activity 7 Take stock of your emotional resilience toolkit and create an action plan
- Spend half an hour reviewing the various documents and ideas that you have collected together in your toolkit folder. If you have forgotten to file anything, now is the time to do it. Re-read what you have written, and see if it still seems practical and realistic.
- Having reviewed your toolkit, draw up an action plan for emotional resilience. Maybe you have identified skills or strategies that will need further development, so this is a way to start planning how to access guidance or training.
You may wish to discuss your toolkit and action plan with your line manager, supervisor or a colleague. Developing and maintaining emotional resilience doesn’t end with becoming qualified, and will continue to be an area of professional development throughout your career.
