UCL Occupational Health Service: adapting to change

6 November 2012

Whether it is changes in the workplace or a disruption in the family, learning to adapt can happen more quickly with resilience - the ability to bounce back after a major event.

We all have the capacity to adjust, but people with higher resilience are less likely to experience depression and more likely to learn from experience. Resilience is a trait which can be developed.

Your Employee Assistance Programme is on hand to support you with information, tips, practical support and counselling to help you work through change, deal with any stress you may be feeling, and build resilience for the future.

Call or visit the EAP online to get answers to your questions about change and resilience.
