Adolescence features major developmental tensions physically, socially, emotionally, and academically. As a parent of an adolescent, you may feel hard-pressed to know how to help your child with complex problems. Our panel of experts will provide you with key pointers for recognizing problems when they start and offer specific ways to help your child engage in a meaningful, well-balanced life. Questions to be addressed: When is intervention needed? Does your adolescent need an alternative school environment? Will your adolescent ever go back into mainstream education? What are reasonable parenting expectations? What supports should you make sure exist on a college campus? Professionals working with adolescents and their parents may also find this event quite helpful.
