Workshop examines youth resilience

On January 27th, the United Way and Covenant House will present Resilience in Action: Addressing Risk by Building on Strength, a workshop facilitated by nationally renowned speaker author and researcher, Ken Ginsburg, MD, MS Ed.

The workshop will focus on resilience- building communication techniques that recognize the strength of youth and guide them in developing coping strategies to deal with stress in an increasingly complex world. Using real-life scenarios, Dr. Ginsburg will emphasize the developmental strengths of youth, the potential of families, as well as the skills needed to empower youth to develop their own solutions.
