Keynote Presentation

Jacqueline A. Rhew, LCPC and Dr. Robin Choquette
We are responsible for raising a future generation of healthy, resilient adults. Developing confidence, problem solving strategies, distress tolerance and communication skills are fundamentals that are imperative for our children to learn before launching into adulthood. We also want our children to have confidence that they can handle difficult situations, overcome adversity, and even bravely face failure. In doing this, we prepare our youth to move beyond their physical and emotional boundaries, recognize their capabilities, know their strengths and weaknesses, and learn that failure is just as important as success.
