FAQ

Do I have to do all the modules or can I elect to do just a few?

Each participant will be advised on which modules are most suitable for their individual circumstances. Generally speaking, we recommend all 6 modules are undertaken for maximum participant benefit, however there may be circumstances when this is not required.

I'm not an injured worker/claimant, but still interested in participating, can I?

The Resilience BoxTM has been designed for both claimants and individuals who have not put in a claim. If you are not a claimant and want to participate in the program, you can do this by having your workplace refer you for one-on-one coaching through the program or by your workplace running an in-house training program in which The Resilience BoxTM is run in a group workshop format. 

How long does the program run for?

It varies based on the initial needs analysis, as you may not need to participate in all modules of the box. A typical program runs for 8-10 hours in total.

How much does it cost?

Programs are customised dependant on the number of sessions required. Quotes can be provided upon request.

In regards to workers compensation claims, how does the referral and invoicing process work?

For accepted workers compensation claims, after we receive written referral / approval from the Nominated Treating Doctor, the cost of The Resilience Box program can be invoiced under gazetted treatment codes.

Is this a psychological treatment program?

No – The Resilience Box is not a treatment program- rather, it is an education program facilitated by Psychologists. There are two main reasons why someone would partake in the program. Firstly, it can be used to support existing treatment being provided to someone who has a psychological diagnosis. In this instance, the aim is to fast-track a person’s recovery and return to wellness. Secondly, the program can be used as a prevention strategy, with the aim being to increase the emotional resilience of participants.

How is this program different from other resilience training?

Many resilience training or coaching programs focus on one element of resilience or wellbeing, which doesn’t provide participants with the holistic framework for strengthening resilience and improving their overall wellbeing. The Resilience BoxTM is different, by working through up to six learning modules over a number of weeks, participants are equipped with the tools and strategies needed for creating positive and lasting behaviour changes.

How are outcomes measured and recorded?

 Depending upon the context and reason for a person engaging in the program, we use a variety of different clinical and behavioural questionnaires to measure pre-program and post program symptom, wellbeing and activity changes.

What are the qualifications of the facilitators?

All our facilitators are registered psychologists who have been trained in the methodologies of positive psychology, cognitive behavioural therapy and mindfulness which are focused on throughout The Resilience BoxTM program.

I can’t attend your office – can I still participate?

Yes you can. We have facilitators and rehabilitation consultants right across Australia who are qualified and experienced in running The Resilience BoxTM. For more remote locations, the program can also be run via video link or skype.
