Resilience Building: A Practical Approach for Teaching Resiliency
Drawing upon information provided by Sheryl Sandberg and Adam Grant in their book Option B, we will explore the concept of personal resiliency. Have you ever wondered why some people seem to bounce back from hardship quicker or faster than others? In this session, we will explore practical tips founded in groundbreaking research about how to courageously face adversity, build resilience and find more joy in life. Our goal is to provide out-of-school time providers with practical tips and strategies to teach resiliency.

Improving Outcomes for Children: The Importance of Child Abuse Prevention
Research has proven that Adverse Childhood Experiences, including child abuse, affect the health and well-being of our society and increase the risk of suicide, substance abuse, and mental and physical health issues. HB 286 mandates that all school personnel receive training to recognize and report child abuse. This interactive session will review the reasons for this training and will empower participants to better recognize abuse and provide support for children who are abused. It will also review mandatory reporting requirements. Free resources for empowering children to recognize, resist, and report abuse will also be reviewed and discussed.
