Due to the stress and uncertainty of the current pandemic, many kids are failing to thrive and are reporting higher levels of anxiety and depression. But adults can help. Resilient children are not born, they are taught.
The Monique Burr Foundation for Children (MBF) is thrilled to present Let’s Talk About Thrivers, an educational webinar with Dr. Michele Borba, Ed.D.
During the webinar Dr. Borba will discuss her new book, Thrivers: Surprising Reasons Why Some Kids Struggle and Others Shine, what she’s learned about resiliency in kids, and how we can all help develop thrivers. She will also talk about the seven essential character strengths that set thrivers apart and ways you can use the book and other resources she’s developed to promote resiliency in kids and to provide education in your own communities about these teachable skills.
This event will be beneficial to parents and professionals such as school counselors, educators, child advocates, outreach and prevention specialists, and youth-serving organization staff. The mental health of youth is just as important as their physical health and with education on how to instill resiliency in youth, we can help prevent mental health crises and help kids thrive in the real world.
