Visitation School Speaker Series
Join us for an evening of impactful and meaningful conversation.

Speaker Series events provide parents, alums, friends of Visitation and members of our community an opportunity to learn about a new topic, engage in interesting conversation and connect with each other.

As parents, we want to make certain that our kids have all the tools they need to become strong, resilient adults. However, some common parenting strategies can accidentally hinder our children developing these critical skills. Learn parenting strategies from a biological and behavioral perspective that build student resilience. Parents will better understand their children through the lens of brain development and emotional intelligence. They will leave with concrete strategies to build their own resilience and that of their children
