Description

Join us to learn more about teaching resiliency and responsibility at an early age. Parents are the first line of defense in preventing their children from experimenting and using drugs. It is never too early to lay the foundation for a drug-free lifestyle. This informative session guides parents to teach resiliency skills to their 3rd to 8th grader, better equipping him/her to make good decisions.

It is appropriate for parents, community members, and professionals and includes 1.5 free CEUs for social workers, professional counselors, marriage and family therapists, psychologists, and nurses.
