Hope Rising: The Science of Hope - Spokane May 20
Hope Rising: The Science of Hope
With Dr. Chan Hellman
Hope Centered and Trauma Informed
Raising hope lies at the core of mentoring youth goals and the heart of MENTOR Washingtons 2019 Spring Symposiums. We know that hopeful people will generate multiple pathways toward their goals. Those who have experienced trauma may have difficulty in managing obstacles and developing alternative pathways to achieve their goals.
At this symposium, youth program staff, community leaders, educators, and volunteers will gain useful tools, practices and approaches to advance positive youth development. They will learn about the positive impact of hope on youth's ability to navigate adversity, flourish, and ultimately reach their goals.
Keynote speaker Dr. Chan Hellman will work with you to answer four essential questions:
Does hope buffer adversity and stress?
Do hopeful children and adults have better psychological, social and behavioral outcomes?
Can hopebeincreased and sustained by target interventions?
How can hopebeincreased and sustained by target interventions?
Light refreshments will be provided.
We are excited to see you there!
