In an increasingly difficult world, it is important for parents and teens to understand how to cope with stress, anxiety, and pressures to achieve. In this seminar with Julie Geeting, mental health counselor and coach, learn more about what builds resilience and adaptability and how parents can help their teenage children.
This workshop will explore themes related to effective communication between parents and their children. Kevin Cloninger will discuss why talking with a child or teen can be so difficult, due to a host of different developmental factors. For example, we will look at how brain development in childhood and adolescence influences listening, speech, and perception, and how parents can take this into account in order to communicate effectively with their children. Afterwards, we will discuss some practical strategies to help improve empathy and communication. Coffee, tea, and water will be provided. $25 for members and non-members. Register through our class schedule on the PALM app. Non-members may call 314-801-8898 option 2 to sign up. Proceeds from the workshop will go to support Anthropedia’s work in the community.
