A Roadmap for Building the Skills Our Kids Need to Thrive
K.N.O.W. 2 Prevent

What’s more, she’ll share actionable steps parents/caregivers can take to help their children learn and develop these traits as they grow from grade school through high school and beyond, so they can thrive in an increasingly uncertain and complex world.

Creating Stability in a Changing World: Cultivating Teen Mental Health in 2023
K.N.O.W. 2 Prevent
The world is shifting - between emerging from COVID-19 precautions, war in Europe, climate concerns, and political polarization, society feels very different now than it did just a few years ago. Although it's been stressful on all of us, youth have had the additional challenge of coping with these changes without the same perspective or mental tools as adults, leading to a nationally-recognized emergency in youth mental health. As a parent, it can be difficult to know where to start - how to create a sense of stability for our children in a very unstable time. Join psychologist Dr. Aaron Weiner for an exploration of three foundational principles in creating emotional stability - connection, structure, and confidence - and how parents can work with their kids to build these tools for emotional resilience from home.
