Power Down & Parent Up: Screen Dependence and Raising Tech-Healthy Children
Our January event with Holli Kenley, MA, MFT, is a timely exploration of the consequences of interactive and passive screen-time on developing children as well as on adult populations, leading to an examination of effective interventions.
Every year about this time, I am amazed at how the fast the year has gone. This year I am also struck with how much tragedy this past year has brought. Fires, shootings, more fires, more shootings. Are our hearts strong enough to hold all the pain and loss? Of course, they are, and the swell of caring and comfort, food, water, and money that has poured forth from our citizens is testament to how strong we are and how much we want to help. At times like these we can be proud that we have chosen careers that help lift this planet up.
Thanksgiving gives us a great time to reflect and be grateful. Thank you to all our renewing members and the many new members we’ve added to our membership. We need you and appreciate you attending our events. You are the chapter and without you...well, you get the point.
2019 starts off with “Power Down & Parent Up: Screen Dependence & Raising Tech-Healthy Children” with Holli Kenly, LMFT. This timely topic looks at unhealthy patterns of screen dependence for adults and children. Holli has a book on Amazon of the same title.
In March, Meg Grundy, LMFT is speaking to us on the topic of understanding and working Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Meg is known in our community as someone who has lots of experience and specializes in this disorder.
We have many more great programs lined up, thanks to Judy Masliyah, and a full day conference on the topic of Forgiveness in our clinical practices in October 2019, so stay tuned.
A big thanks to the outstanding and generous Board members who are the backbone of this Chapter. You are so important to what we are doing.
Be safe, generous and healthy through the upcoming December holidays and I’ll see you in January!
