Creative Teenagers and Stress- A Practical Approach to Heightening Emotional Resilience

We can not underestimate the impact of stress on the lives of teenagers, parents and families. Emotional resilience refers to one’s ability to adapt to stressful situations. Teenagers can be inherently resilient and can also learn additional skills to be able to navigate and adapt to life’s constant difficulties and changes. This presentation will assist you in developing additional skills to identify, address and discuss the major stressors specific to ESA students. In addition, we will discuss emotional resilience, identify traits and empower you to help your teenagers become more emotionally resilient. The presenter, Andrea Badgley M.S.W., RSW will draw upon actual case studies, current research and literature. Participants will have opportunity to ask questions during and after the presentation.

Date: Tuesday April 16th, 7 – 9 pm
