Dr. Michael Ungar is among the best known writers and researchers on the topic of resilience in the world. His work has changed the way resilience is understood, shifting the focus from individual traits to the interactions between people and their families, schools, workplaces, and communities.
All are welcome to attend a free public presentation by Dr. Ungar on Wednesday, October 26 at 7:00 p.m. at the Delta Charlottetown (Henry Johnson room) on the topic: How Families, Schools and Communities make Young Children Resilient. The information will be interesting for parents, teachers, and other interested members of our school communities.
