Reminder – on Thursday, January 12th, the Northborough-Southborough School District is holding the another presentation in this year’s Speaker Series for parents.
The free talk is from 6:30 to 8:00 pm in Algonquin’s Black Box Theatre. Kerry Wilkins, MD, a Psychiatry Specialist will present “The Interface of the Brain and the Mind on Resiliency – How to Use Biological and Psychological Principles to Help Children Strive for Success”
Wilkins will focus on the importance of promoting resiliency in schools and at home.
Topics for discussion include:
- the biology of resiliency
- how the brain develops
- the importance of making sure these factors are developed and strengthened
- and the importance of parental modeling in a child’s capacity with regard to internal self-perception and cognitive skills.
The session is the second of three keynotes in this year’s speaker series. Assistant Superintendent Gregory Martineau described this year’s focus as “centering on students’ social and emotional well-being.” (If you missed it, you can check out the first presentation, here.)
And save the date for the final session. On April 13th, Jerry Shultz, Ph.D., a Clinical Neruopsychologist and author, will present “Stress: the Breakfast of Champions – How to put kids at the cusp of confidence and on the path to success”. The session will take place at Melican School in the Band Room. (That’s Robert E Melican Middle School at 145 Lincoln Street, Northborough.)
Both sessions will be recorded for broadcast and posting by Southborough Access Media and Northborough Cable.
