How do we make children more resilient when they are angry, anxious or self-harming? In this story-filled presentation, Dr. Michael Ungar provides nine practical strategies parents and caregivers need to help young people of all ages heal. 

Based on material from his new book, I Still Love You, his clinical practice and his research around the world, Dr. Ungar will share what families and schools have taught him about the power of unconditional love. Be prepared for an inspiring presentation. Dr. Ungar’s words will help you understand the importance of the everyday heroics that change children’s lives, even when children’s parents and caregivers are unsure what to do next.
