Raising Resilient Teens in Challenging Times Virtual Parent Presentation

Thank you for attending our virtual presentation and the important discussion of some of the challenges of parenting a teen. We know that for many of you, these challenges are amplified due to Covid and the many recent events weighing on society. We are so grateful to our incredible panelists as well: Allie Perrotta, Dr. Tyree Oredein, Kate Sharkey, and Schneider Juste. As mentioned last night, please do not hesitate to reach out if you have further questions or would like to request additional support for you, your school, or your community. You can email Susan (susan@sptsusa.org) or Dawn (dawn@sptsusa.org).

We also ask that you take just a few minutes to complete the presentation survey. This will help us to improve future presentations, develop new resources, and seek grant funding for future projects.


If you were unable to join us, or would like to review the presentation, please enjoy the recording of the panel below.


Navigating Back to School

Navigating Back to School was developed to provide support for all members of the competent school community and to suggest practical tips for the 2020-2021 school year. The learning modules help participants to: Recognize the impact COVID-19 has had on them, Accept that the foreseeable future will be one of uncertainty, and Move Forward in this new learning climate.
This learning experience for parents and guardians of students in all grades combines short video clips, instructional material and activities to assist parents in navigating the journey of the upcoming school year, for themselves and for their children.
