Next week, we’ll head to the makerspace at Western Reserve Academy to work on the production of the students’ inventive and educational games. In the meantime, primary documents, literature, research, discussions, and lessons will continue to provide an important backdrop to all their learning of this important historical period.
Research shows that the ability to recover from setbacks and cope effectively with stress may be as essential to success as talent or intelligence.
The Roots of Resilience
Drawing from her award-winning New York Times best seller Untangled: Guiding Teenage Girls Through the Seven Transitions into Adulthood and her forthcoming book, Under Pressure: Confronting the Epidemic of Stress and Anxiety in Girls (February 2019), Dr. Damour will be speaking on the topic of building resilience throughout childhood and adolescence.
Join us to hear Dr. Lisa Damour and learn about:
- the difference between healthy and unhealthy stress and anxiety
- how to help children embrace challenges and address obstacles
- finding a healthy balance between being a "helicopter" or "hands-off" parent
