SOLD OUT - ADD YOURSELF TO THE WAITLIST.
Resilience is the ability to bounce back – and move forward – from periods of change and adversity, stress and trauma, loss, disappointment, and perhaps most importantly, the strain and intensity of just doing the “day-to-day” in today’s world.
Skills for greater resilience are achievable for those who are vulnerable – they can be learned and developed – like any other skill.
Edmond is a health educator, licensed psychotherapist, and speaker who works with businesses, public and private organisations, individual clients, athletes and sport teams in New Zealand and the US to improve communication, reduce conflict and stress, increase resilience, and facilitate positive change.
Edmond and his family moved to New Zealand in 2008, and became citizens in 2015. He is a senior lecturer in Health and Sport Science at the Eastern Institute of Technology (EIT), and prior, a senior lecturer in Humanities and Physical Education at the University of California, Riverside, where he was twice recipient of the University Distinguished Teaching Award.
As director of UCR’s nationally known martial-arts program, Edmond coached numerous individuals and teams to national (USA) and international karate championships. Edmond developed ‘Let’s Make Me Resilient’ with Health Hawke’s Bay – the primary health organisation in Hawke’s Bay.
