Taking the Time to Listen [presentation] [video]

Are you finding it difficult to get your teen to talk with you? It seems like communication would be easier since you’re all at home together, but the reality is different. Maybe it’s time to stop talking to them and start listening. In this webinar, learn about the social development of adolescents as well as strategies you can use to truly listen to and connect with your child.

Presented by Eva Martinez, Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) at CHC.
