Parenting for a Different World, a group bringing educational programs to the community, will hold “Authentic Success: Raising Children And Adolescents Who Are Prepared To Thrive In A Challenging World” on Tuesday, October 10, from 6:30pm to 8:30pm at the Severna Park Community Center. The presentation will be led by Dr. Kenneth Ginsburg, who serves as Philadelphia’s homeless youth director of health services at the Covenant House in Pennsylvania. The theme that ties together his clinical practice, teaching, research practice and advocacy efforts is that of building on the strength of teenagers by fostering their internal resilience. His goal is to translate the best of what is known from research and practice into practical approaches that parents, professionals and communities can use to prepare children and teens to thrive. More information can be found at www.fosteringresilience.com/about.php.

Learning objectives for parents will include building confidence for their children, noticing and reinforcing their children’s competence, fostering the vital connection between parents and children, developing critical coping strategies that will help children thrive even through difficult times, and helping their children and teens gain control by learning that the privileges they earn are linked to the responsibility they demonstrate.

The cost of the program is $10 per person, and tickets can be purchased through Eventbrite.

This event is sponsored by Anne Arundel County Mental Health Agency Inc. and the Partnership for Children, Youth and Families. For more information, call 410-222-7858 or email anoren@aamentalhealth.org.
