Launching Teens and Young Adults
into Lives of Success
Presented by Mary Ann Maggiore, MDiv
One of the greatest stressors for families can be the period of launching a young person into an independent life. Most parents, even in our profession, are fearful of this stage and tend to become adamant about the young person’s future. Many young people feel obligated to fulfill their parents’ dreams, often dismissing or forgetting about their own.
In her presentation, Mary Ann Maggiore will discuss and illustrate with case scenarios several successful methods she has adopted in her lifelong career with adolescents and young adults and their families to help launch young people. She will focus on three primary launching situations: (1) College, trade school, or travel? How to choose what works, (2) Jobs? Where are they and how do we connect young people to them, and (3) Moving away? Creating exit strategies that lead to success. Mary Ann Maggiore's objective is to provide us with tools and strategies that may be helpful not only in our work with clients but also in our personal lives with our own children.
