Workshops


"WhyTry" in Life and Building Resilience in Young People


We are delighted to have been chosen to host a Resilience and “WhyTry” event by Hans Magleby of the “WhyTry” Team who have flown in from the USA to present workshops for professionals and parents on building resilience and the ” WhyTry” programme.


As our young people today face lives with significant challenges, resilience is a key quality that can carry them through difficult times towards great personal success.


Please join us for an exciting and interactive afternoon as the team from “WhyTry” build on their acclaimed evidence based program and explore the 4 sources of resilience and outline the skills that we can teach to raise the resilience of our students and youth.


The workshop will be held in The Good News Church, Chicheley Road, Harrow Weald from 12.00pm till 2.30pm on Wednesday 3rd December. It is most suited to professionals or people working with young people with ADHD but parents are welcome to attend.
