Parenting class offered

WOODBURY — “Raising Resilient Kids,” a free, one-session parent education workshop for parents and caregivers of children of all ages will be in Woodbury March 28.

Family therapist Bob Downs discusses skills children need, core components of resilient families and how parents can raise children to face challenges, bounce back from adversity and learn life-long lessons in the process.

Downs has worked with families, adolescents and young adults for 30 years. His latest project, “Family Strengths Mapping,” is a resource for parents to understand and encourage family beliefs, strengths and skills to immunize children with resiliency skills against future challenges.

The workshop is offered through Community Education and is 6:30 to 8 p.m. March 28, at Woodbury’s East Ridge High School. The session is free but registration is required. Registration is available at
