Watch this five-and-a-half-minute video of Don EliumExternal Link, noted family therapist and author, talking to a group of BSA leaders at the National Youth Forum held late last year in Dallas. If you are interested in viewing all the speakers, a DVD will be distributed at this year’s National Annual Meeting at the Innovation and Research booth. You can also view each speaker’s highlights at the National Youth ForumExternal Link site.
