Columbia, Maryland (PRWEB) March 26, 2012
Thrive Center founder, Dr. Rick Silver, served as a panelist at the 3rd annual “Diamonds in the Rough” conference on March 18, 2012, which was sponsored by the Weinfeld Education Group. Dr. Silver has participated for the last two years. What made the difference? The moving and sentimental way, in which he introduced himself.
He said, “My father died 1 week ago. Although this remark might seem somewhat unconventional and out of place at this conference, I mention it because his passing has been a powerful reminder of how wrenching the process of transition -- or perhaps more appropriately we should say transformation – can be for any of us.”
He continued, “As with the passing of a loved one, the failure to launch young adults that are depressed, anxious, and angry; temporarily stalled, experiencing a loss of foundation, a sense of isolation, confusion about how to move forward with life, fear of taking the next step, helplessness, guilt and remorse, a desire to withdraw from the world, a loss of motivation that weighs heavily on their souls.”
The conference focuses on working with parents and professionals who assist and support children with special learning needs and who failed to launch. After his introduction, the audience and panelist were eager to learn Silver’s coping strategy.
Dr. Silver is an expert in the mental health field, who is sought after for his innovative approach to helping families address a full range of mental care issues. He is the creator of the first of its kind “Failure to Launch” program, Heron’s Gate.
