Please feel free to join us and/or to extend an invitation to any parents, teachers, colleagues that you feel may be have an interest in learning how to better support the development of strong socials skills in our teens. Here are the event, speaker and registration details:
Social Fluency Workshop – January 16th, 2019
Is your teen developing social skills beyond the screen? Social media is always on, but climbing rates of anxiety disorders and social isolation suggest that our teens aren’t building the kinds of connections - or learning the skills to make the connections - that are critical for their future health, wealth and happiness. On January 16th, 2019 from 7-9PM Killarney Secondary PAC is hosting a Social Fluency Workshop to share ideas and practical exercises for helping our teens (and ourselves!) develop and foster healthy social connections.
The workshop is open to all and is Free with RSVP. Speaker and registration details here
