I See You: Connecting With and Parenting Teenagers

“What do you do?” Many people answer this question by describing their jobs and work.  Most attend weekly or daily meetings, or even participate in conferences. But how many hours per week do we invest in our work as parents? There is a plethora of books and an equal number of proposed parenting strategies. While many of the strategies are helpful, it can feel overwhelming to sort through the numerous child-rearing ideas and suggestions.

In this talk, we come back to the basics of effective parenting that are rooted in science and research, as we integrate behavioral, cognitive-behavioral, and mindfulness strategies for parenting success.  Presented by Nick Hong, Ph.D.

Thursday, May 6 from 7:00-8:30 pm
