THIS EVENT IS BEING HOSTED BY PARENT COUNCILS OF SIR ADAM BECK AND BADEN PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
Resilience is the capability to readily recover and “bounce back” from trauma, adversity, tragedy and other sources of stress. Resilient children are those who are able to effectively handle any pressure and get things done, recover from setbacks, adapt well to change, and keep going despite obstacles.
 
Please join us on Wednesday, April 20, 2016 for a parent information night featuring Dr. C. Sturdy who will provide parents with practical information and strategies to raise, support and develop resilient children in an insightful 90-minute presentation. The presentation will include a 15 minute Q&A session and a take-home handout summarizing the presentation. Dr. C. Sturdy is a professional speaker based in Toronto, ON, Canada. He is an author, father, former teacher and school principal, and an active community member. Dr. Sturdy’s book “The Hurried Life: 101 Ways To Slow It Down” will be available for purchase for $20 including HST. Read more about Dr. C. Sturdy and this practical book at www.drsturdy.com.
 
A variety of local Community Mental Health & Wellness partners will be onsite throughout the evening offering resources and contact information in a casual information fair environment.
