12/12/19 PFPC Week 8: Youth learned about personality traits in themselves and others. They learned what their personal strengths are.
The caregivers listened to a guest speaker, Lee Stiles from Carteret and Onslow Co. EYFP give a personal testimony about working directly with people who have battled with substance abuse. They learned how substance misuse can affect a families quality of life and how the resilience of a family can help them to overcome obstacles in life.
The family session had the families discuss when their family experienced a crisis and how they dealt with it.
One of the main observations of this session was how much Hurricane Florence affected our local families. They are still recovering physically and mentally. The families focused on this subject because it really showed them how resilient their family units really are.
