Words, Strategies and Wisdom that Build Resilience in Families with Children with Special Needs

A Talk April 24th by by Maria Trozzi, M.Ed., Presented by the Scituate PAC

Maria Trozzi, M.Ed., Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at Boston University School of Medicine, Director of the Good Grief Program and author of Talking with Children about Loss, will discuss the stresses that our families face as they deal with the often complicated tasks of living with a child with a disability.

She has recently concluded a two-year study, funded by a regional center for disabilities in Los Angeles County, that explores the stresses, both obvious and hidden, that can sometimes feel overwhelming and never-ending.

Trozzi will present strategies for helping parents to understand and cope, particularly at identified touchpoints in the developmental life of their child. She will share her nationally recognized conceptual model for working with educators that helps them walk in the parents shoes in order to understand and transform even the most difficult and challenging parent/educator relationships.

When:   7:00 - 9:00pm Wednesday, April 24, 2013

Where: Wampatuck School Library
                  266 Tilden Road, Scituate, MA

Lastly, Ms. Trozzi, a typical sibling of a brother who is disabled, will offer insights for helping siblings cope with the losses and gains inherent in a family with a child with special needs. Copies of her book, Talking with Children about Losswill be available for signing.
