Event description

Description

Regardless of whether you are a parent, a counselor, a teacher, a social worker or anyone who serves others, a basic understanding of how the brain works can be extremely helpful in increasing effectiveness with your interactions with others. Come learn about the ideal world for brain development, the effects of abuse and neglect on the brain and the ways in which we can keep the brain in mind when working with others. It's not rocket science, but it is brain science!!

Please join us immediately after this workshop to enjoy a reception with drinks, appetizers, and tours of our newly re-purposed Gladney Home!
