May – Building Resilience in Young People

5/18/21  6:00pm–7:00pm CST

“Although we were all teenagers once, adolescence presents challenges we often forget about. Even in the best of times, their lives contain an enormous amount of uncertainty and can include overwhelming stress.” The more strain in the family, the easier it is to have a blind spot for what our teenagers are experiencing. Dr. Ginsburg returns to the Learning a Latte Series to provide a new lens to see teenagers, understand their thinking, and appreciate their transitional years from childhood to young adulthood.

Dr. Ginsburg specializes in Adolescent Medicine at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, is a Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, and Co-Founder and Director of Programs at Center for Parent and Teen Communication. He also serves Philadelphia’s homeless youth as Director of Health Services at Covenant House Pennsylvania. The theme is that of building on the strength of teenagers by fostering their internal resilience. His goal is to translate the best of what is known from research and practice into approaches we can all can use to prepare children and teens to thrive.
