Our Kids are Not Broken Dr. Kenneth Ginsburg

  • Harry & Rose Samson Family Jewish Community Center

 

Please note : Dr. Ginsburg's workshop advertised below is about the effects of traumatic experiences on youth and best practices for working with youth who have experienced trauma to promote healing and their success. It is a different program than the ones Dr. Ginsburg did for REDgen in 2014 and 2015. This program is suitable for parents and for professionals who work with youth. We just want to be sure that parents know that this is a heavy topic and different from his previous presentations.

Join us as we gain insights from Dr. Kenneth Ginsburg, M.D., M.S. Ed, a pediatrician specializing in Adolescent Medicine at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and a Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.

The theme, tying together his clinical practice, teaching, research and advocacy efforts is that of building on the strength of teenagers by fostering their internal resilience. His goal: translate the best of research and practice into practical approaches.

He wants to give parents, professionals and communities ideas that they can use to prepare children and teens to thrive.

Current neuroscience provides a wealth of information regarding brain health and brain development.  Dr. Michael Mazius, Child Clinical Psychologist, will discuss how we, as parents, early on, can develop areas of our child's brain responsible for problem solving, self-control and emotional regulation. Following a few simple guidelines, we can teach our children how to find and remain calm, think flexibly, develop organizational skill and inspire a genuine love for learning in and out of the classroom.  Please make time in your schedule for this highly informative and useful conversation.

Suicide Prevention Training

This training will teach you how to recognize the warning signs and risk factors of suicide, how to ask the question, provide hope and persuade someone to continue living, and how to refer someone to get help. This is training that everyone should have, just like CPR for cardiac events.  The more people who learn this, the more lives that can potentially be saved. We will also incorporate Somatic Knowing Techniques to help manage stress and anxiety.

This training is designed for students 9th grade and up. Adults are welcome too.
