Thought Leader Roundtable
Development is Relational...
Free Conference Call and Discussion
Wednesday, September 20, 2017 1:30-2:30 PM EDT
We all know that young people are more successful when they not only have academic knowledge, but also the social and emotional skills and mindsets needed to navigate life, college and work. But how much do we really understand about what it takes to build competence and confidence? How much is youth success dependent not on what they are taught but how they are treated? Few organizations understand the importance of adult support better than the Search Institute, the creators of the Developmental Assets Framework.
Join Karen Pittman as she spends an hour with Kent Pekel, President and CEO of the Search Institute, to learn more about the Developmental Relationships Framework, a powerful new tool the Search Institute is using to help all adults - teachers, youth workers and most importantly families - understand and focus their actions to contribute to youth success.
Space is limited.
Announcement from Transitions RTC:
Navigating School and Work with a Serious Mental Health Condition:
It Can Be a Bumpy Ride
Thursday, September 14, 2017
12:00 - 1:00 PM EDT
Young adults with serious mental health conditions (SMHC) face delays in participating or are prevented from participating in settings where career development and exploration activities typically occur. Little is still known about how young adults navigate these activities while also managing a SMHC.
In this webinar, you'll hear about experiences of young adults with SMHC as they learn how to navigate life, including their success and challenges with educational and employment activities.
The young people with SMHC featured in this webinar provide retrospectives of a) their education, training, and employment experiences, b) how those activities developed over time, and c) how contextual life circumstances (e.g., family history, experiences with SMHC) and pivotal life events (e.g., hospitalization) may have influenced these activities.
Join Transitions RTC's Kathryn Sabella, Laura Golden, and Emma Pici D'Ottavio for this insightful and informative webinar!
