Resilience: A special session with Mervlyn KitashimaOctober 30, 5:00pm - 6:30pm
Mānoa Campus, Art Auditorium
Mervlyn Kitashima, a participant in Emmy Wernerâ€™s seminal KauaÊ»i Longitudinal Study on Resilience, will speak on October 30 at UH MÄnoa.
Mervlyn , who is the Parents & Alumni Relations Administrator for Kamehameha Schools, grew up in poverty in the 1950s and 1960s on KauaÊ»i, and, despite having experienced multiple risk factors early in her life, was identified as being successful and accomplished at age 40. She will share her insights about resilience and children typically known as â€œat risk,â€ but with her counter-perspective of children â€œat promise.â€
Mervlyn will share her personal experiences, and, with educators in mind, discuss the ways in which schools and teachers can provide the protective factors that make a difference in the lives of children â€œat promise.â€ Those present will learn, through her presentation, how to support and affect positive change when working with children, schools, and families.
