Program description:

We all want to see our girls reach their best outcomes and mature into healthy, strong resilient girls. Resilience involves the ability to ‘bounce back’ or recover when things go wrong or negative experiences impact us. By giving our girls key strategies to develop resilience, we prepare them for life.

During this 2 hour presentation (including time for discussion and questions), Author and Educator Sharon Witt, will provide key skills and strategies our girls need in order to be resilient, strong and capable young women.

Key topics include:

•  Developing Emotional Intelligence

•  Navigating difficult relationships

•  Conflict management skills

•  The personal values and attitudes we want to foster in our girls

•  Developing positive relationships

•  How to foster optimistic thinking and self-talk
