Renowned Author and Adolescent Medicine Specialist Dr. Ken Ginsburg to Speak at Montgomery School

On Tuesday, October 2, Montgomery School is hosting Dr. Ken Ginsburg, a pediatrician specializing in Adolescent Medicine at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, to give an overview of the Seven C’s Model of Resilience. This event is free and open to the public.

Dr. Ginsburg will share communication strategies that position parents to be unwavering positive forces in their children’s lives. Parents will leave the session better prepared to:

  • Build confidence in their children
  • Notice and reinforce their children’s competence
  • Foster the vital connection between parents and children
  • Develop character and a sense of contribution in their children
  • Develop those critical coping strategies that will help their children thrive (and avoid risky behaviors!) even through difficult times
  • Help their children and teens gain control by learning that the privileges they earn are linked to the responsibility they demonstrate.

In addition to his position at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Kenneth Ginsburg, M.D. is also an Associate Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. He serves as Director of Health Services at Covenant House Pennsylvania, an agency that serves Philadelphia’s homeless and marginalized youth. Dr. Ginsburg lectures widely to national and international parent and professional audiences. His most recent books are Building Resilience in Children and Teens: Giving Kids Roots and Wings and Letting Go with Love and Confidence: Raising Responsible, Self-Sufficient Teens.
