Travelling the “Road of Life” with Resilience

A resilience promotion workshop from Reaching IN…Reaching OUT

  • Time:  12:30 -3:30 pm each day via Zoom
  • Cost:  free of charge for downtown agencies
  • Register by January 27, 2021

Research shows that people who can bounce back live longer and have better health and happier relationships. People with resilience are also more successful in school and jobs.

Here is some good news: resilience can be learned! And young children develop resilience by watching adults model resilient thinking and coping strategies in everyday situations.

You are invited to a presentation about helping children bounce back and steer through life’s inevitable bumps in the road.

Please note:

  • Priority will be given to agencies working with downtown families. Others will be added to a waitlist.
