About This Workshop

Yes, it’s prom season with graduation right around the corner. But really, the chances are you worry about your teen engaging in risky behavior throughout the year. Studies show that youth who feel they can talk with their parents are 42% less likely to engage in risky behaviors such as promiscuity, using substances and aggression toward others. However, it’s easy to have breakdowns when talking with teens, especially about their struggles. Join Peace At Home founder, Ruth E. Freeman, LCSW and seasoned adolescent clinician and founder of UAreHeard, Marc Lehman, LMFT to discover how to communicate with your tween or teen by applying strategies that work. Bring your questions and get answers on the spot.
