Self-reflection is a crucial element of enhancing personal resilience. The TRSR (Teacher Resilience Self-Reflection) tool is an instrument that can be used by teachers to identify protective and risk factors related to their professional resilience. It is a web-based instrument, with scales adapted, developed and validated for this specific application which reflect the factors that contribute to teacher resilience as outlined in the theoretical framework discussed in this chapter. The TRSR gives users specific individual feedback regarding which aspects of resilience could be enhanced online or in face-to-face workshops. It also gives trainers information regarding their learning group so that they can tailor the workshops to the specific needs of their participants. This chapter gives an overview of the theoretical framework and the TRSR which serves to guide the reflection process. In addition, it details how to use the TRSR and it discusses its educational potential.
