The Secret Lives of Teens

"Many parents struggle to understandand get along with their teen. This presentation provides a window into the adolescent brain, an appreciation of the volume and complexity of a
teen's life, insight into what teens do 
and say (and why!), and real
parenting strategies to produce meaningful change."

The 'A'

"When anxiety spirals out of control, it dominates virtually everything - academics, social life, and athletic endeavors, and more. To combat this, educators and parents can play a leading role by helping youth identify their anxiety, and guiding youth to the skills they need to take control."
"Parents and professionals need to be able to recognize the indicators of depression and suicide. Yet, many don't know what to look for...let alone what to say to the person at risk. This training is both informative and empowering, and gives participants the skills and courage to ask tough - and oftentimes
life-saving - questions."


Suicide Prevention

of Technology

"As parents, we worry about our kids' health - but we often don't consider how emotionally destructive technology can be. The reality is that seemingly ordinary practices - from social media use to Smartphone communication - can impact the mental health of our youth and pose not-so-obvious dangers."
