Developing emotional intelligence, resilience and skills for maintaining personal wellbeing in students of health and social care.
This resource sheet has been developed by the Mental Health in Higher Education project at Lancaster University in conjunction with the Social Policy and Social Work Subject Centre of the Higher Education Academy (SWAP). It aims to raise awareness of the need for a focus on developing emotional intelligence, enhancing resilience and those qualities that underpin it, and maintaining personal wellbeing for students who will become practitioners in health and social care. It outlines the rationale for highlighting these issues across the disciplines and points to key resources and initiatives.
