The Power of Perseverance for Living with Parkinson’s
Lecture Description:

Life, at times, draws all of us to the brink, the edge, that point where we simply do not know where to turn or what to do next. We often have a vague notion that there must be something we can do, that there must be a way forward. Often, we’re told to ‘hold on’ to ‘endure the storm’ and ‘don’t give up’ and even occasionally we come across the term ‘perseverance.’ Seldom does it come in a context that can be grasped. In this session, we will unpack what the word perseverance means discovering the many rich, positive, practical skills that can be learned and skills that will take you back from the brink and forward to new victories and new success. ‘Perseverance’ is the way forward.
