Bradley Hospital Announces Parenting Matters 2013


Bradley Hospital, the nation’s first psychiatric hospital for children, presents its 23rd annual Parenting Matters conference. This half-day event offers parents, childcare providers and teachers a unique opportunity to learn from top child development and behavior professionals in a casual setting.

The event will feature a keynote presentation by Kenneth Barish, Ph.D., a clinical associate professor of psychology at Weill Medical College of Cornell University. Barish will present: “Pride and Joy: A Guide to Understanding Your Child’s Emotions and Solving Family Problems.” Barish will offer solutions to many common problems of daily family life - problems that may erode the joyfulness of children and the pleasure in being parents.

In addition to the keynote presentation, a variety of workshops are available, including, “Pride and Joy in the Classroom,” “Stress Management for Caregivers,” “The Impact of Modern Technology on the American Family,” “Behavioral Evaluation of Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders,” “Bullying in Childhood,” “Confident and Self-Assured Kids,” and many more.
