I just qualified as MISP Instructor and had the honour to be trained by Sylvie Hetu last weekend! I loved it as I really want to work with children and have done so in the past. She mentioned to get in touch with you to find out about MISP with teenagers and the work you've been doing. It would be great if I can get more resources for this.

I am so pleased that you enjoyed your training with Sylvie. I trained with her in 2001 and have been working in a voluntary capacity with MISA ever since. I am sure you will love the work. I have net wonderful people and made friends in developing the MISP - not to mention enjoying the delight of the children.
I am a former secondary school teacher and therapist and with colleagues developed a wellbeing programme for young people - but it grew. The IMPACT Wellbeing Programme is now for young people and adults in a variety of situations. Please take a look at the website www.impact4wellbeing.co.uk This is informative. Then please get back to me and maybe we can discuss further training for you or other options.
Keep in touch and I am sure I will be in touch with you as Chair of MISA!
