Morning Workshop (10:00 am-12:00 pm) "Supporting Our Teens in a Climate of Crisis"
Our kids live in a world of perceived and real crises. What are they so worried about? What are the impacts of trauma and crisis in adolescence? Can you support teens who are in a constant state of anxiety?
Afternoon Workshop (1:00 pm-3:00 pm) "Programming to Build Character"
All of us need support at times, and at times we need the opportunity to work our problems out on our own. How do we strengthen our kids and their environments to build resilience? Learn about character strengths, how to spot them, and how to program for them. Make sure that your time with teens is spent helping them to become their best selves!
