Hi Dr. Arredondo,
I spoke with you after the parent talk at MA High School It was really fascinating. I was wondering if you could present this talk to a boy scout troop’s annual holiday gathering of parents and families at Boy Scout Service Center at Lucie Stern Comm Ctr, PA. This would be a mixed group of adults, and middle and high school boys and some siblings from MP. There would be about 50-60 people. It would be on Saturday Dec 12. 5:30-9. Probably give talk at 7-8p. Are you available and willing? It is our tradition to invite specialists from the community to speak to the boys and their families about topics that may pique their interest as they mature or seek out areas for career/study potential.
The Tonal Connectedness Initiative is designed to promote a culturally plural model for increasing personal and collective resilience.
Currently it is focused on increasing the resilience of at-risk youth by strengthening their positive connectedness to others. The Initiative trains professionals and lay caregivers working with vulnerable youth in multiple social service sector settings to recognize, map, and cultivate connectedness for these children and their families using a methodology that increases youth engagement in their own connectedness visualization process.
