Following up after Dr. Ginsburg’s November 2, 2015 visit to Hatboro-Horsham
On Monday, November 2, 2015, Dr. Ginsburg addressed an audience of families and community members who learned a great deal about raising children to become resilient, and paving the way for a lifetime of healthy coping skills. The following day, Dr. Ginsburg spoke to the entire Kindergarten through grade 12 staff of Hatboro-Horsham School District for a full Professional Development Inservice Day.
The feedback from both presentations has been tremendous, and now you have the opportunity to see what all the excitement is about! Thanks to Bob Anderson, HHSD’s videographer (with help from Val Fasy), we are able to provide the complete videos from both presentations.
Ken Ginsburg, MD, MS Ed is a pediatrician specializing in Adolescent Medicine at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and a Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.
He also serves Philadelphia’s homeless youth as Director of Health Services at Covenant House Pennsylvania. The theme that ties together his clinical practice, teaching, research and advocacy efforts is that of building on the strength of teenagers by fostering their internal resilience. His goal is to translate the best of what is known from research and practice into practical approaches parents, professionals and communities can use to prepare children and teens to thrive.
