Program Description: Join us and learn about the finer points of the divorce process — from law and finance, to wellness and coping strategies — so you understand the impact of divorce both now and in your future. We will give you the tools necessary to evolve into a knowledgeable, dynamic decision-maker who’s able to make informed choices … and not emotionally-driven, costly decisions.

I will be speaking on mediation as well as strategies for coping with the emotional challenges of divorce.

Rethinking Challenging Kids: Challenging behavior has traditionally been thought of as willful and goal-oriented which has led to approaches focusing on motivating better behavior using rewards and punishments. At Think:Kids we have some very different ideas about why kids with behavior challenges struggle. Research demonstrates that for most of these kids, their challenges result from a lack of skill, not will; skills such as problem solving, frustration tolerance and flexibility. In this workshop, you will learn about Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) – an evidence-based approach which decreases challenging behavior while simultaneously helping students build the critical thinking skills they will need to succeed.
