Prepare the Child for the Road: School-Family Partnerships for Developing Resilient Students
Tuesday, February 13, 6 p.m., AMSA Upper School Cafeteria
Stress is an unavoidable part of life. Resilient individuals are able to manage, and even thrive, in the face of adversity. Schools and families can create important partnerships to help teach students the skills necessary to be resilient, using strategies to independently manage and overcome obstacles. This discussion focuses on resilience skills and the ways that adults can help children develop them.
Presenter: Alex Hirshberg, Psy.D. is a clinical psychologist and founder of Hirshberg Behavioral Health Services. He has spent the last several years providing consultation, professional development, and assessment services for dozens of districts across Massachusetts.
