The second annual Changing the Odds Conference, hosted by Salesmanship Club Youth and Family Centers, will take place on September 26 and 27, 2013 at the Hyatt Regency Dallas at Reunion.
This conference is for all educators, mental health professionals, parents and interested community members who are committed to learning about innovative ways to help kids and families achieve their full potential.
Changing the Odds 2013 will emphasize the importance of grit, a “growth mindset”, healthy relationships, perseverance, and resilience in children. The conference will include keynotes discussing the latest research in the areas of neuroscience and social emotional development, as well as practical application strategies from Salesmanship Club staff.
As we face decreasing performance in education, inaccessible mental health services for those in need, and a widening achievement gap between low-income and affluent children, it is clear that something must be done. This year’s conference explores how we can cultivate two characteristics in all children that are inextricably linked to success: perseverance and resilience.
