The Power of Self-Reliance to Help Kids Break Free From Stress and Anxiety - presented by Christine Fonseca
Developed specifically for parents, this workshop focused on understanding how teaching self-reliance to gifted children helps them conquer the adverse effects of stress and anxiety. Specific strategies are given to teach self-reliance at home and help children develop the tools needed to move through stress and anxiety. Filled with stories, research, and practical tips, Mrs. Fonseca brings the complex world of gifted children to life using humor and expertise.

CHRISTINE FONSECA is a licensed educational psychologist, critically acclaimed author, and a nationally recognized speaker on topics related to educational psychology, mental health, giftedness, and using storytelling to heal past wounds.
