May Speaking Event Wrap-up

On Monday, May 20, 2019, the Parenting Success Network held their 6th Annual Speaking Event, with Dr. Ann Masten, a Professor of Child Development from the University of Minnesota who studies resilience in human development, particularly in the context of poverty, homelessness, war, disaster, and migration.  Dr. Masten was the keynote speaker at the OSU Parenting Educator Conference earlier in the day, and then came over to LBCC and addressed local parents at the Tripp Theater on campus.

We had a good turn-out for the event, and Dr. Masten proved to be a very engaging and enjoyable speaker.  We appreciate those who took the time to attend, and as promised, here is a link to the hand-outs from Dr. Masten’s presentation.

Also, we are pleased to announce that next year’s event will be held on Monday, May 18, 2020, and our keynote speaker will be Dr. Chandra Ghosh Ippen, an Associate Director of the Child Trauma Research Program at the University of California, San Francisco.  Save the date!! We will be providing more details as the event gets closer.
