This program is part of a virtual speaker series brought to the community by the Knowledge Network of Westchester (K.N.O.W) 2 Prevent, a collaboration of Westchester County organizations working together to empower parents with the essential tools to raise resilient & confident children, help strengthen relationships, and reduce risky behaviors.
With the inability to host live speaker presentations in our individual schools and communities, the group was formed to offer FREE monthly virtual presentations by nationally-recognized experts. Speakers will focus on issues relevant to parents now and be a resource to ALL Westchester families so that we can learn together.
On May 4th at 7pm, K.N.O.W 2 Prevent welcomes Matt Bellace, PhD, for "Supporting Teens in Reducing Their Stress (and Ours)":
Recent research suggests that well-adjusted teenagers have stronger non-cognitive skills, such as self-control, grit and resilience. This webinar will focus on how parents can help foster those skills in a supportive environment without arguing. Specifically, it will present techniques such as mindfulness meditation, effective communication and using natural highs as healthy coping mechanisms against stress, alcohol and other drug use and bullying behavior. The goal is to help improve the quality of life for both parents and their teens. His very powerful message – we need to support young people in both words and actions if we want them to make healthy choices for themselves.
