Are You Raising a Resilient Teen? Practical Strategies for Parents and Teens

Date: Thursday, October 18, 2012
Time: 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Location: Lisgar Collegiate Institute, Alumni Auditorium, 29 Lisgar St. Ottawa (next to Ottawa City Hall)
Admission: Free

Doors open at 6:30pm. Seating will be on a first-come first-serve basis.

“Resilience does not come from rare, special qualities but from the everyday magic of ordinary, normative human resources”. A panel of speakers, including Dr. Barbara Virley, a clinical psychologist by training, Bev Wilcox, a public health nurse from Ottawa Public Health’s School Health Program, will discuss resilience as a skill that can be acquired, the individual and environmental factors in building teen and family resilience, proactive parenting, and resources available in our community. Audience members are encouraged to send their questions to the panel via e-mail to by October 4th, or bring your questions along for the Q&A period of the session. Join us and prepare your teens for the increasingly challenging world!

Hosted by the Lisgar School Council (LSC) with support from the OCDSB Continuing Education Fund
