2 SESSIONS FOR ALL ADULTS, MS STUDENTS, HS STUDENTS



SESSION 1 – 7:00-8:00pm


1.  The Resilience Formula: Proactive, Not Reactive Parenting!

Presenter:  Joel Haber

For: All Parents, Faculty, Staff, Administrators and Adult Community Members

Everyone faces challenges.  Resilience is how we respond to those challenges.
Many parenting books tell us what makes a good parent, but not how to be that type of parent, especially during challenges, when strong emotions come into play.  Proactive parenting puts you in control by providing:
• A FRAMEWORK for handling parenting challenges
• LESSONS to script language to make children independent and resilient
• A PLAN to transform challenges into opportunities to teach resilience

2. Who Are Your School's Quiet Heros?            

Presenter:  Kim John Payne

For:   JJMS Students 

Mr. Payne will motivate you to recognize the quiet things you do to support each other and in particular, he will show how students support those who are being subtly excluded. This discussion will foster "no big deal inclusion" on a day to day level in our JJMS community...."Quiet" but very powerful.


3. Been There, Done That

Presenters:  Young People in Recovery

For:  JJHS Students

Back by popular demand! If you think addiction isn’t possible when you’re young, think again. Young people in recovery will share their experiences with drug addiction and alcoholism, recounting the long road to recovery and the ongoing struggle to stay sober.


SESSION 2 – 8:15-9:15pm


4. Simplicity Parenting:Using the Extraordinary Power of Less to Raise Calmer, Happier, and More Secure Kids

Presenter:  Kim John Payne

For:All Parents, Faculty, Staff, Administrators and Adult Community Members

Would you like to slow down your children's lives but don't know where to start? Want to worry and hover less and enjoy your children more? Simplicity Parenting will inspire you, reassure you, and most important of all, it will remind you: that less is more, that simplicity trumps complication, that rythym and routine bring peace to your family.

5. Melt Downs or Smooth Sailing: Meeting Middle School Challenges, You Make the Choice  

Presenter: Joel Haber

For: JJMS Students

This workshop will help students identify the small and big challenges faced by middle schoolers and give them a formula for making those challenges easier to manage, The Resilience Formula.


6. Award Winning Documentary Film by JJHS 2012 Graduate, Christoph Sawyer, "Homophobia in High School"

Presenters: JJHS Faculty, Student and Community Member Panel

For:  JJHS Students

Organizer

Katonah-Lewisboro Family University

Family University is not-for-profit corporation, established in 1994, formed following a town meeting when 300 members of the Katonah Lewisboro School District gathered to address the large numbers of alcohol and drug related accidents involving John Jay High School students. 

It is a community based organization made up of dedicated teachers, parents, students, counselors and other professionals. 

Family University believes that fostering effective parenting skills and enhancing communication among family members will help prevent the misuse of drugs and alcohol, and encourage children to make positive choices. 

It is a valuable community resource that has impacted a growing number of parents and children. Its reach has expanded dramatically from 400 people in 1994 to over 4,000 people today.
