RESILIENCE: THE PATH TO HOPE AND MEANING
April 21, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Presenter: Monica Caldwell, MSW, LCSW, Director of Mental Health Programs, RISE
The scientific literature on resilience is extensive, and is especially relevant now to help us begin to answer the question, “So, we’ve
learned about Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), what’s next?” Come to this seminar to learn about eight protective factors that
you can embed universally in your agencies and schools to enhance resilience in young people. This model was developed based on the insights of young people themselves, through their own descriptions of what has worked on their path to hope and healing. An individual student protocol will be offered to apply resiliency-building efforts across the tiers of support. These same resiliency-promoting protective factors can be a frame for our own well-being as professionals committed to working with youth and families. We will take time to consider our own path to meaning in the workplace and learn strategies that promote a healthier, more positive and productive daily approach to your work. Caution: The power of your influence in young people’s lives and a reflection on your own resilience may leave you feeling hopeful!
