A Surprising Source of Strength: Empowering Kids to Use Creativity Through Challenge - Dr. Joanne Foster
Creativity has unlimited potential to enrich children’s and teens’ lives. Moreover, creativity can always be tapped, including during challenging times—for example, when kids experience change or transitions, social/emotional issues, gifted-related demands, or motivational concerns. Creativity is a choice! This session has a dual focus: to better understand the power of creativity, and to help kids harness it for successful outcomes.
