Youth Mental Health: Knowing When to Help and How

Mental health can be a tricky topic for parents. What signs do we need to look for? When do we help, and how? Dr. Cha and Dr. Huang--faculty members in TC's Counseling and Clinical Psychology Department and co-directors of the The Child and Adolescent Mental Health Project (CAMHP)--will provide an overview of mental health issues for children and adolescents, and discuss practical ways for parents to effectively address mental health concerns such as depression, anxiety, and self-harm. In addition, Dr. Cha and Dr. Huang will discuss key research on these topics and offer parenting resources, with the ultimate goal of fostering well-being both within and beyond childhood and adolescence.

Teacher You: Creating Learning Spaces at Home

Each in our own way, we are all teachers and lifelong learners. As our children’s first teachers we are facilitating their early development in our everyday decisions and the environments in which we live. Yet, have we been mindful in creating our home environment, is it an ideal place to learn, explore and stretch possibilities? Just as schools, museums, and libraries do, we can create optimal learning spaces that speak to our children’s development and maximize their creative potential.

Tools and technology for learning to be a learner: the powerful ideas of making and coding

Making and coding are all the rage these days. And connecting kids to these activities is easier than ever with plenty of maker fairs to attend, expensive new construction kits to buy, and fun, playful coding apps to download. But what is the value of these activities? Is “making” really new? Does everyone need to learn to code? How do these practices and activities relate to things like “STEAM” (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) or so-called "21st Century Skills?” And if these things are important, how or where do we start with our children? Dr. Holbert will provide a brief overview of the maker movement and new efforts to provide computer science to all children. He will also discuss current thinking around who engages in these activities and how we, as parents, can encourage all of our children to find value in these practices and skills.
