Wellness Management examines the traits of emotional resilience, which can include perseverance, optimism, and internal locus of control. There are personal differences, and some of us manage stress better than others. Emotional resilience is an important trait to have, as those that have difficulties dealing with stress can sometimes turn to an addictive substance or behavior to sooth their emotional pain.
People with low self-esteem, poor interpersonal relationships, poor work identity, and inappropriate leisure activities could not handle the pain in their lives, they may form relationships of convenience with an addictive substance or behavior to relieve themselves of their stress. However, the relief is short-lived, and the emotional pain soon demands the person to engage in the use of the addictive substance/behavior repeatedly.
You will gain insights on cultivating emotional resilience, handling stress, relaxation techniques, as well as learn about the development of an addiction, the treatment modalities, and counselling techniques.
