Raising Resilient Children and Adolescents
Description: Join us as we welcome Dr. Robert Brooks, Ph.D. a Harvard Medical School faculty member and author of fourteen books, who will outline an approach to help children and adolescents deal more effectively with stress and pressure, in order to become more resilient.
In his presentation, Dr. Brooks will highlight factors that help children and teens deal more effectively with challenges in today’s stress-filled world. He will describe (a) why some youngsters from birth have a more difficult time developing resilience than others, (b) the importance of identifying and reinforcing each child’s “islands of competence,” and (c) specific strategies for nurturing caring, responsibility, hope, and resilience in our children and teens.
