the content at resilio has been created by experts, and is based upon techniques that have extensive research supporting them.
these techniques include a mixture of cognitive behavioural therapy, psychotherapy, behavioural activation, meditative and other traditions.
some of the science behind these techniques includes:
a strong evidence base for cognitive behavioural therapy's positive effects on sleep dysfunction and sensitivity to anxiety 1
behavioural activation's perceived benefits and improvements in many areas of life 2
mindfulness-based stress reduction programmes have been shown produce positive psychological and physiological outcomes in people with stress and anxiety 3
the effects of positive psychotherapy in increasing happiness 4
studies show that there is an increase in life satisfaction and resilience that is predicted by positive emotions 5, and so resilio looks forward to helping us with these techniques.
