SUU Child Behavioral Health Conference

Practical Parenting: Everyday Strategies Recommended by Professionals

May 20, 2017

Are you looking for effective parenting advice? Would you like more information on managing common childhood behaviors? Things like temper tantrums, fears, and other concerns? Do you want to know what to do if you are worried about your child's behavior?

We welcome you to join us for our community event: Practical Parenting: Everyday Strategies Recommended by Professionals. This half-day conference will provide a broad range of information to parents who have questions about managing common child behaviors, as well as parents who have concerns about their children. This information is intended to help navigate the role of parenting and learn where to seek additional resources. Individual advice is not provided during this event.

The presenters are all practicing psychologists who have significant experience working with families who experience mild, everyday issues, to more serious concerns. We invite parents, caregivers, and community members to join us on May 20th!
