Self Help Inc.’s Coordinated Family and Community Engagement Program is in the early stages of planning a parent event for April 4th, 2019 which will kick off our Brain Building In Progress Week.
We have been lucky enough to have secured an inspirational speaker from the “Life Is Good” Kids Foundation. Steve Gross is the Founder and Chief Playmaker of the LIFE IS GOOD PLAYMAKERS-The Signature Program of the Kids Foundation. Steve is a clinical social worker and a pioneer in the field of using playful engagement and relationships to overcome the devastating impact of early childhood trauma. Steve’s talents have been called upon to respond to some of the greatest catastrophes of our time. At the heart of his work, Steve helps others discover the power of optimism so that they can build resilience and bring greater joy, connection, courage and creativity to their lives.
From the Self Help Inc. CFCE’s most recent Community Needs Assessment, we found there was a high need for support for families around trauma and anxiety. Everyone encounters stress in their lives at some point and this presentation will focus on the “Power of Optimism” and how you can transform your life and overcome challenges! It will include some hands-on strategies for parents/caregivers to use with their children. We are also planning to have a dinner and some great raffles from the “Life is Good” Kids Foundation and other Donors. This will be a parents’ night out to re-energize and learn about the Power of OPTIMISM, JOY and PLAY! This evening will be provided at no cost to parents/caregivers!
