VIRTUAL PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT WEBINAR: Building Youth Resiliency | Opportunities and Challenges

When:  Sep 23, 2020 from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM (ET)

A worldwide pandemic, school violence, consumption of social media, social injustices, and pressures to succeed are just some of the issues youth experience today. According to the CDC, 6.3 million children and youth (ages 3-17) in the U.S. have diagnosed depression and anxiety. As family & consumer sciences professionals the question is, how do we teach young people to cope with today’s issues and develop resiliency or the ability to “bounce back” when they face adversity? This webinar will define resiliency, identify elements of resiliency, and discuss ways to help build resiliency skills in young people.
