Transitions and Changes: From Managers to Consultants: Redefining our Role and Relationship with our Teenage Children, Thursday, September 21, 2017, 12:00 noon-1:00 p.m., Education Resource Center Meeting Room B.  Moderated by Monica G. Maughlin, LPC, Faculty and Employee Assistance Program Consultant and Mary B. Sherman, LCSW, CEAP, Faculty and Employee Assistance Program Consultant. Remember when your child greeted you with a smile and a warm hug when you got home from work?  If you have a teen living in your home, you may feel lucky to receive an inaudible grunt as you walk in the door, if you are acknowledged at all. Hard to believe but these – and other - seemingly off-putting behaviors are a necessary part of adolescent development.  This seminar will introduce and explain basic neurological, developmental and relational changes occurring for our teenage kids, and provide some tips on helpful ways to adjust how we perceive, discipline, relate and engage with them during their second 12 years of life.  This session also provides a framework for communication with colleagues and patients and their families in similar circumstances.
