#Myth - Resilience is having thick skin and just getting on with things.

Episode: Resilience with Kathryn Berkett - Engage Training Join Danielle (Co-Founder of AgeFIT Home) as she talks to Kathryn Berkett (Engage Training), a leading NZ neuroscientist about resilience. In this episode Danielle and Kathryn talk about:

  • what resilience actually is and learning to better define it;

  • how we can build better resilience in ourselves; and

  • the unique position seniors within our community hold when it comes to helping our younger generations become more resilient.

Kathryn touches briefly on the situation where you as a grandparent may be faced with potential conflict with your children about your style of looking after the grandchildren and discusses why the feeling of ‘needing to fix situations’ can sometimes stand in the way of helping to build resilience.

For more information on Kathryn Berkett and what she does visit Kathryn has recently released a series of podcasts of with Pio called 'I've got questions...Pio' with Pio Terei which are available to listen directly from Kathryn's website. AgeFIT Home is an online strength and balance exercise program designed especially for seniors. You can learn more about it at
