WEBINAR: Natural Supports with Nancy Reynolds and Dr. Suzanne Tough

About this Webinar

Natural supports are mutual relationships that include close connections, such as family and friends, and broader connections, such as neighbours and coaches. Natural supports can lessen the effects of stress and difficult experiences by providing opportunities for learning, as well as receiving encouragement and advice. These connections have been shown to be key for children and youth because they can counteract adverse home, school or community environments.
