About this event

At this dinner presentation, Mattleman will share insight on tweens and teens are really thinking, what they fear, why they don't share more, and how adults can actively support the tweens and teens in their lives. This presentation covers areas such as depression, suicide, "acting out" behaviors, drug and alcohol use and more.

Participants will leave the workshop with:

  • Strategies they can implement immediately
  • New ways of understanding tweens and teens and their behavior
  • Innovative techniques for engaging tweens and teens
  • Confidence, courage and new language to use with tweens and teens
