Raising Resilient Kids
and Fostering Ego Strength
Presented by Dr. Julaine Field
This presentation will examine family, school and community practices which foster ego strength in middle school students. More than self-esteem, ego strength implies that young people are constructing or have constructed a sense of emotional stability which assists them in managing internal and external stress. Once developed, ego strength provides a buffering effect for adolescent issues such as bullying, body image dissatisfaction, peer pressure, family distress, etc. Ego strength is also associated with psychological resilience in adulthood. Practical tips for building ego strength will be provided and “red flag” behaviors, which signify that students need assistance outside of their traditional support system, will be discussed.
Please join event Chair Allison Dodge at Smart-Girl’s Annual Luncheon
Thursday, April 18th, Temple Emanuel, 11 AM – 1 PM
*presentation will start promptly at 11:30AM
