Raising Resilient Teens

2017-18 Conversations that Matter series; Session 2

MCCHS Conversations that Matter: Raising Resilient Teens

In an effort to partner with our families and community, Marian Central Catholic High School is hosting a quarterly series on various topics that are important and impact our students.

The second in this series will review specific interventions designed to assist children in managing their anxiety and to promote increased motivation, healthy goal setting, and active school engagement for the child. Factors that contribute to school avoidant behaviors as well as ways to identify maladaptive coping responses will be explored. Attendees will learn how to develop parenting strategies to assist their children with healthy coping responses and engage them in effective communication and language that promotes self-advocacy and independence.

W e will have an expert speaker to address this topic:

- Jackie Rhew, Clinical Liaison from Amita Health

Feel free to click on the speaker's name for a brief bio about her.

We will also have a priest, Father Carl Beekman from Sts. Peter and Paul, Cary, that will address the Church's perspective on this issue.

Please join us as we talk about these tough issues and look for real solutions together.

>>> This session is specifically designed for parents only; not the students.
