Living alongside a Sibling with ED – Hugh van Cuylenburg, EDFA Ambassador 16 December 2021

EDFA’s Ambassador, Hugh van Cuylenburg is founder & facilitator of The Resilience Project, best selling author and co-host of the popular podcast, The Imperfects. In this webinar, Hugh talks about his own story growing up alongside his sibling with an eating disorder, resilience and supporting the mental health and wellbeing of parents and carers during one of, if not THE, toughest journey of their lives.

Inspired by his discovery of resilience in its purest form through his experience in the far north of India, volunteering and living at an underprivileged school in the Himalayas, Hugh returned to Melbourne and commenced working on his program for schools. ‘The Resilience Project’ was born. Having completed his post graduate studies, looking at resilience and wellbeing, Hugh has developed and facilitated programs for over 900 schools Australia wide.

In 2015, the National Rugby League asked Hugh to run workshops at every club in the competition. Since then, he has worked with the Australian Cricket Team, the Australian Netball Team, the Australian Women’s Soccer Team, The Jillaroos and 10 AFL teams. Beyond the team environment, Hugh has been lucky enough to work one on one with individuals such as Steve Smith, Dustin Martin and Billy Slater. He currently works closely with the Port Adelaide Football Club.

In addition to his work in schools and elite sport, Hugh has presented to over 500 corporate groups as a keynote speaker and developed comprehensive programs for a range of workplaces across different sectors.

The session includes Q&A’s with the audience.
