Parent University

The event will follow a similar format as previous years, headlined with a keynote address by Dr. Christopher Willard  

Dr. Willard has spoken all over the world on the topic of mindfulness. Here is a brief description of his presentation:
"The sharp rise in stress and mental health issues regularly top adult concerns about their children and teens. Join bestselling author, psychologist and consultant Dr. Christopher Willard for a talk on managing stress and building resilience through mindfulness for kids, teens and families. Dr. Willard will be sharing practices for  parents to use themselves and take home to their children. We will discuss tailoring techniques to a range of kids issues, including learning differences, medical concerns, and mental health issues, as well as integrating mindfulness into academics,  arts and athletics for attention spans ranging from 30 seconds to 30 minutes."

In addition to Dr. Willard's presentation, we will also hold two workshop sessions run by members of our faculty and the Burlington community on a variety of topics which will include:
