Parents, Educators and Mental Health Professionals Working Together to Help Children Thrive
The College of Education and Behavioral Sciences is pleased to present the 2015 Sharon K. Burrows Conference Series. This year we address the topic of "Resilience". The primary purpose of this conference is to answer the question, "Why do some young people falter and others thrive when facing life's challenges?" Bullying is an all-too-common life challenge faced by today's youth. Whether educators or parents are dealing with the perpetrator or the target of bullying, resilience
is the necessary quality that helps youth learn from life's challenges and change their life's course.
The keynote speaker for this conference is Dr. Rahn K. Bailey. Dr. Bailey is the Chair of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine at Wake Forest School of Medicine and the immediate past president of the National Medical Association. This is a community event and three hours of continuing education units are available for public school educators.
