Utilising mistakes and failures to build resilience

We often think of mistakes and failures as something to be avoided. Yet, research indicates that building on these experiences and helping our patients utilise them can lead to resilience. Resilience is the ability to recover and bounce back from a difficulty. This is a very important life skill that we want our patients to develop. Using a strengths-based method, we can help our patients build self-efficacy, an important factor that leads to self-confidence and empowers them to think differently about their mistakes and failures and view them as important life experiences.

This lecture will include some basic research and ideas on the topic of resilience and its impact on how we work with our patients. It will challenge our mindset regarding mistakes and failures.

After the lecture, participants would be able to:

  • Relay some basic information on the topic of resilience
  • Examine their thinking regarding mistakes and failures
  • Value mistakes and failures as important keys to building resilience
  • Use strengths-based methods and communication tools to build self-efficacy and resilience
