Skip Navigation LinksVictorian Deaf Education Institute > News and Events > Masterclass – ‘Building Resilience’ with Paul Kallaras
On Sunday 1 April 2012 the Victorian Deaf Education Institute hosted a well-attended Masterclass entitled ‘Building Resilience’ presented by Paul Kallaras.  Paul is a psychologist from the Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children with a particular interest in facilitating child and adolescent wellbeing.

Paul’s presentation was based on the concept of the Resilience Doughnut created by clinical psychologist, Lyn Worsley – a simple, yet effective model for building resilience in young people. Research has shown that children who are deaf or hard of hearing are more likely to encounter external stressors which affect mental health and wellbeing.
