Event description

Description

In a world that runs on stress, pressure, and competition, it can be difficult to build resilience in children. Katie Hurley, child and adolescent psychotherapist, gives parents the tools they need to:

  • identify and understand the obstacles their kids face
  • enable their kids to learn how to cope with setbacks
  • equip their kids to bounce back from stress.

By understanding how children internalize stress and pressure and learning how to empower kids to work through the ups and downs of childhood and adolescence, parents can raise kids who lead with confidence, compassion, and empathy.
