Resilience Presentation for Parents
and Other Caring Adults

The speaker's presentation

Our Speaker’s Bureau visits schools, churches, parent
nights, and businesses throughout Utah County.



Our presentation is focused on actionable items that you can do today to help
your child through a variety of social and emotional struggles.

You'll learn:

A new way of thinking...

...about children’s mental health and behavior

A simple and practical framework...

...to clarify your concerns about a child

How to apply this framework...

...to improve your relationship with children, teenagers, and other people in your life

The presentation takes about 45-60 minutes and is free of charge! It's is intended for parents and other caring adults, but we are happy to do youth groups or high school groups if the adult mentors are also present.

(Unfortunately, right now we are only able to serve Utah County.) 

The presentation

Our presenters give the same presentation that Dr. Matt Swenson gives in this recording. All our speakers are carefully screened for professional expertise as well as speaking ability.
