October 8, 2013 - Drama Free Communication: Handling Difficult Interactions with Your Teen
Dr. Jody Janati, University of MN, Faculty in Communication Studies
Take 2! Jody was our presenter last fall, teaching drama free step-by-step techniques that demonstrated practical solutions for difficult interactions with your teen; controlling anger and emotions; being assertive and effectively diffusing conflict through a variety of approaches that really work; and setting healthy boundaries to ultimately find your "Conversation Peace."
Jody has revised her presentation for 2013 to include more specific teen/parent interactions and has promised a workshop-like format that will stress role-playing examples and hands-on strategies that parents can apply right away. Janati led a student session on this topic last spring for Sam Ebute and it was very well received .
January 14, 2014 - TBD
April 15, 2014- TBD
PTSA Speaker Series Nights are Tuesdays @ 7p.m. in the Media Center on the dates above.
