Maribel Del Rio-Roberts, Psy.D.

Maribel Del Rio-Roberts, Psy.D., Associate Professor at NSU’s Abraham S. Fischler College of Education, recently attended the Special Olympics Florida State Basketball Championship in Tavares, Florida, as the Volunteer Clinical Director for their Strong Minds program. This program is an interactive learning activity focused on developing adaptive coping skills. Competition assists in the progress of active strategies and enhances emotional wellness. Athletes learn about and try a few different active coping strategies as they move through the stations. Before exiting, athletes identify the strategies they like best and volunteers provide them with visual reminders to use these tools in competition and in daily life.
