Donna Volpitta, Ed.D., St. Luke's parent and author of The Resilience Formula, was the guest speaker at the Parents' Association's recent "Spread the Word" event. Dr. Volpitta is an educator whose work focuses on transforming the way that people think about challenge in order to build resilience. Using her Mindful Leadership Model, she discussed transitions our children face as they plan for the future, or face disappointments, and how parents can help guide their children through the demands of growing up. Drawing on the latest research in neurology, psychology and education, the Mindful Leadership Model has been applied to areas of leadership from parenting to corporate management. “We were thrilled with Donna’s talk,” said Karen Newman, President of the PA. “We try to offer topics that will truly benefit parents and it was clear, this subject resonated."
