Resilia is committed to the wellbeing of the injured workers who we assist. We enable them to lead healthy lives, function well, and have control over their recovery journeys. Here is how the Resilient Me 1:1 Coaching Program has seen a participant improve their capabilities to manage life’s challenges and increase psychological capacity for work.
For the purpose of this case study and to remain confidentiality, we will refer to the following client as Mia.
Meet Mia, she developed PTSD whilst employed as a midwife. Prior to engagement with Resilia, she experienced an exacerbation in her symptoms when she was triggered by a similar experience outside of her work environment. Her initial DASS inventory indicated depression = moderate; stress = severe; anxiety = extremely severe. She also had below average wellbeing scores, and reduced capacity for work (8 hours/3-4 days per week). Mia’s psychological symptoms were significant, and her scorecard indicated that she rarely felt she delt with problems well, was unable to think clearly, did not feel good about herself, and she was uninterested in new things. In addition, she was dissatisfied in her role due to concerns about potential exacerbation and uncertainly about her future employability. Mia completed the Resilient Me 1:1 Coaching Program which is an evidence-based treatment enhancement coaching program built on the foundations of positive psychology. Mia developed skills in understanding more diverse ways of thinking, and strategies to effectively deal with difficult people, emotions and situations. She was able to acquire healthy coping mechanisms in response to stress and triggers to her injury. The Resilient Me 1:1 coaching program decreased Mia’s psychological symptoms and gave her a renewed focus on her health and wellbeing. This strengthened her emotional resilience and enhanced recovery and return to work. Mia reported significant improvements in all aspects of life. She obtained fulltime work capacity and secured a new role. Post DASS results indicated a significant reduction in anxiety and stress. Wellbeing scores improved significantly – she felt optimistic about the future, loved, and interested in experiencing new things.
