Gordon PAC and PIE welcome again Dr. Bethany Michel for a follow-up presentation on building resilience in children.

Dr. Bethany Michel is a lecturer in the Department of Psychology at the University of British Columbia and a clinical fellow at the Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) Centre of Vancouver. She received her Ph.D. in clinical science at Harvard University, specializing in child and adolescent mood and anxiety disorders. She has worked as a clinician with children and youth ages 5-22 in the Child and Adolescent Treatment Program at the Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders (CARD) at Boston University. She has enjoyed offering workshops on a range of childhood mental health issues to parents and educators since 2008.

In this session, parents, caregivers, and teachers will learn how to help children build their resilience against anxiety. This will include an overview of how anxiety develops and is maintained by thoughts and behavior, and specific steps caregivers can take to increase children's sense of self-efficacy and decrease anxiety.

1 adult ticket includes ‘pizza & presentation’ for adult and childminding with ‘pizza & movie night’ for kids.

Childminding will be provided by Grade 7 volunteers and supervised by an adult skilled in working with diverse learners. Please send an email to partnersforinclusiveeducation@gmail.com with name, age, and any specific needs for each child attending. Use CHILDCARE in the subject line.

Seats are limited so please sign up ASAP to avoid disappointment.
