Resiliency & Mental Health for Students
Guest Speaker: Dr. Michael Ungar – Founder and Director of the Resilience Research Centre, Dalhousie University
This session will explore how teachers can best help families and schools provide kids with what they need to grow up well and experience the right amount of challenge.
As both a family therapist and a world-renowned researcher on resilience, Michael Ungar has noticed that many children are not being given the opportunities to develop the normal coping strategies they need for independent lives. Though the stats tell us that children today are safer than ever before in history, parents and educators are hesitant to give them what Michael has called ‘the risk-taker’s advantage.’
This session WILL NOT be recorded due to academic integrity.
