Thu February 20th: 11:00 am-12:00 pm ESTFree
About This Webinar:
During adolescence, youth need their parents’ attention and support more than ever. With so many changes and transitions happening during adolescence, this phase of life is a time of excitement and anxiety―for youth and their parents. Branch Out is the fourth program in the THRIVE Initiative and will be available online for parents of middle-school (10-14) and high-school (15-18) age children. Branch Out is designed to support parents and caregivers in their parenting roles as they, in turn, nurture their child during the transitions from childhood to adulthood.
This webinar highlights the development behind Branch Out and what the program will look like. Additionally, the presenters cover the newly designed Thrive website and show participants how to access resources and learning modules.
