"Supporting Children in Reducing Their Stress" (LMAC Parent Program Series)

Thursday, March 28, 2019

Livingston Public Schools invites parents to a presentation by speaker, psychologist, and comedian Matt Bellace, PhD: "Supporting Children in Reducing Their Stress (and Ours) in the Pursuit of Success"

As a clinical psychologist and stand-up comedian, Dr. Bellace uses humor to convey his very powerful message – we need to support young people in both words and actions if we want them to make healthy choices for themselves. Recent research suggests that well-adjusted teenagers have stronger non-cognitive skills, such as self-control, grit and resilience. This program will focus on how parents can help foster those skills in a supporting environment without arguing. Specifically, it will present techniques such as mindfulness meditation, effective communication and using natural highs as healthy coping mechanisms against stress, alcohol and other drug use and bullying behavior. The goal is to help improve the quality of life for both parents and their teens.
