Compassion and Resilience - Bounce Forward

Compassion and Resilience

A three-session on-line course for parents  

Compassion is a human quality and characteristic that is going to be essential if we are to tackle the biggest global challenges alongside advances in technology. It’s easier to be less compassionate about others from behind a screen and so educating our children to be compassionate is part of the solution. Emotional intelligence, compassion and empathy are key attributes that will be needed for success in the future.

DSPL 8 Dacorum are funding Bounce Forward to deliver a series of three 60 minute on-line webinars. The sessions will explore compassion in a way that is practical, thought provoking and in the context of helping children to develop resilience, enabling them to thrive now and in the future.
