Creating Resilience in Families

This year, the Grammar Parent Day will take place next Sunday 11th January 2015.

Dr Fergus Heffernan a Clinical Psychologist, with an MSc in Family Therapies, and a PHD in Neuro Science (pictured here speaking at the Kilkenny Campus of NUI Maynooth) will be our speaker. Dr Heffernan has spent almost 35 years working with families in the most distressed areas of the World in regions affected by war, famine, earthquake, and hurricanes. His presentations and Workshops on “Creating Resilience in Families” are much sought after in communities and universities all over the World.

Fergus will look at why our young people do not seem to have created resilience and the role families can take in supporting their young people.

The day will begin at 10.15am with a Celebration of the Eucharist and will end about 1 to 1.30pm.  A more specific itinerary will be sent to you before the day.

We hope that you can attend.  I would really appreciate if you could RSVP before this Wednesday 7th January 2015 to 045 838294 or lgriffin@clongowes.netLight refreshments will be provided at the end of the presentation in the refectory, please let us know if you would like to stay.
