Solving Common Family Problems: Five Essential Steps
Kenneth Barish, Ph.D.
In every family, there will be problems. The problem may be getting ready for school in the morning, doing homework, or going to bed at night. In this workshop, child psychologist Kenneth Barish will present a pro-active plan for solving common family problems. Dr. Barish will discuss how parents can engage children in the process of problem-solving and replace frequent arguments with appreciation and feelings of pride.

Dr. Barish is the author of Pride and Joy: A Guide to Understanding Your Child’s Emotions and Solving Family Problems, winner of the 2013 International Book Award (Parenting and Family), and the 2013 Eric Hoffer Book Award (Home Category).

New Research to Help Us Better Understand and Parent Adolescents
Elizabeth Cohn Stuntz, LCSW
New studies on brain development help us understand risk-taking in adolescents. Other research shows that connection to the family is one of the most important factors in protecting teens against emotional problems, suicide, violence and risky behaviors. Learn ways to stay connected to your teens while they experiment and search for their personal identity and independence.

Elizabeth Cohn Stuntz, LCSW is Assistant Director of the Child and Adolescent Program at the Westchester Center for the Study of Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy, faculty member at the National Institutes for Psychotherapy, and has a private practice in Mamaroneck, NY.

The Hidden Dimension of Good Parenting
Robert J. Katz, Ph.D.
The child’s capacity to directly sense the ongoing organization of her own inner experience lies at the core of the child’s developing “SELF.” The parent’s ability to become aware of and respond to this realm of experience is the hidden dimension of good parenting. By focusing on this aspect of experience, parents can potentially learn about the possibility of facilitating a deeper and more empathic connection to their child’s sense of themselves.

Robert J. Katz, Ph.D. is on the faculty at the NYU Postdoctoral Program, the Manhattan Institute for Psychoanalysis and the Westchester Center for the Study of Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy; he is on the Medical Staff at Phelps Memorial Hospital and is in private practice in both Manhattan and Briarcliff Manor.
