KEEP IT UP! THE ART OF THE BOUNCE: A LITTLE HANDBOOK OF RESILIENCE

Haileybury Education and Developmental Psychologist Maria Bailey and HaileyburyX director Peter Thomas have released 'KEEP IT UP! The Art of the Bounce: A little handbook of resilience' that aims to help students develop and build their resilience, not just now, but for life.

A follow up to the earlier 'LEVELUP! A little handbook of learning online' released earlier this year, KEEP IT UP! covers topics including self-motivation, maintaining social connection, self-acceptance, recovery from failure, expressing gratitude, the psychology of flow and sleep hygiene, and includes a variety of practical activities for students.

Peter Thomas says: “KEEP IT UP! The Art of the Bounce' is our small contribution to the fabulous work that parents, guardians, schools, teachers and mental health professionals everywhere are doing for students.

The focus of KEEP IT UP! is on building resilience - not just for now, but for life. Even though it is written in an informal - and we hope funny - way, it has a serious message: finding practical ways to develop and maintain your resilience is essential.

Just as LEVELUP! aimed to support and encourage student agency in online learning, KEEP IT UP! aims to help students assert their agency in a situation where little is certain."
