This session highlighted features of strength-based strategies to enhance the positive development of students at various developmental stages. Evidence was shared on how these strategies both enhance thriving behaviors in students (e.g. exhibiting leadership, valuing diversity) and reduce health-compromising risky behaviors (e.g. alcohol and other drug use, acts of violence). Practical every day strategies for integration of the strategies into the school environment were featured.

Intended Audience
