There is one thing all youth & families have in common - they all experience hard and challenging times. In this session, you will hear powerful testimonies, gain insights and be reminded of some valuable tools and perspectives to support youth and their families, through what is often some of the most challenging and influential years of their lives. Together, we will explore clinical and spiritual approaches to offering support to youth and their families.
