How do we talk with and support our children amid the daily barrage of media reports about sexual harassment? How can we guide teens in navigating these issues in their own lives? School Counselor Amy Blackburn offers practical advice and resources.
A recent article in the New York Times magazine highlights the dilemma facing parents, therapists, and schools: Does helping anxious teenagers mean protecting them from their fears, or pushing them to face those same fears? School counselor Amy Blackburn shares insights from Lynn Lyons, a nationally recognized speaker, author and psychotherapist, who will speak to Winsor parents in February after working with faculty this summer.
Winsor's Wellness Program is carefully and intentionally woven into the fabric of the whole student experience. We believe that mental, physical, and intellectual health are inextricably linked whether a student is in the classroom, on the playing field, in an art studio, in the dining hall, or at home. We also believe that promoting balance and a healthy lifestyle should start the day a student walks through our doors for the first time and end only when they leave to pursue the next goal.
Enjoy an in-depth look at the sage advice offered by Rachel Simmons in a very special evening for Winsor parents. During a Feb. 22 visit, the acclaimed author spoke engagingly with parents about her research on adolescent girls after spending the day with students and faculty.
