Event description

Description

Grange Park Outreach is very pleased to announce that Dr Tina Rae will be joining us on Thursday 8 February 2018 from 4.30pm until 6.30pm to deliver a presentation entitled Reaching for Resilience.

Reaching for Resilience

Boosting resilience can inoculate against depression and other mental illnesses - it can also build self-confidence and achievement.

This presentation will introduce participants to the application of resilience theory for schools and families and to the `learnable' skills of resilience. It will explore a range of interventions designed to increase resilience in young people and provide staff and parents with the opportunity to develop their skills.

Resilient children can ‘resist adversity, cope with uncertainty and recover more successfully from traumatic events or episodes’. This presentation will explore the evidence for resilience based approaches and suggest ways in which all practitioners and parents can promote resilience in children, families and those who work with them.
