Think Differently: A New Approach for Parenting, Teaching and Treating Children with Behavioral Challenges

       

Think Differently: A New Approach for Parenting, Teaching and Treating Children with Behavioral Challenges

Sponsored by the Sharon Middle School

Temple Sinai ?-? 25 Canton Street ?-? Sharon, MA 02067

Thursday, June 11th, 2015 ?-? 8:30 A.M. - 4:00 P.M.

WORKSHOP OVERVIEW

Think:Kids, a program in the Department of Psychiatry at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), has partnered with the Sharon Middle School  to offer a one-day training program featuring Dr. Tai Katzenstein and Dr. Larry Epstein. This one-day introductory training provides a foundation for professionals and parents interested in learning the evidence-based approach to understanding and helping children and adolescents with behavioral challenges called Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS). This training serves as the prerequisite for our professional intensive training seminars (Tier 1 and Tier 2). 

The CPS approach provides a new way of understanding and helping kids who struggle with behavioral challenges. Challenging behavior has traditionally been thought of as willful and goal oriented which has led to approaches that focus on motivating better behavior using reward and punishment programs. If you’ve tried these strategies and they haven’t worked, this workshop is for you! At Think:Kids we have some very different ideas about why these kids struggle. Research over the past 30 years demonstrates that for the majority of these kids their challenges result from a lack of crucial thinking skills when it comes to things like problem solving, frustration tolerance and flexibility. The CPS approach, therefore, focuses on helping adults teach the skills these children lack while resolving the chronic problems that tend to precipitate challenging behavior. Through lecture, videos, case examples and role plays this one-day training will help you shift your thinking and approach to foster positive relationships with these children and encourage growth in areas of self-regulation, communication and problem solving. 

WORKSHOP PRESENTERS

Tai Katzenstein, Ph.D. is Director of Clinical Training and Certification at Think:Kids. She is also a staff psychologist and Clinical Instructor in Psychology in the Department of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Katzenstein began helping families using the Collaborative Problem Solving approach as part of her post-doctoral fellowship. Since then, Dr. Katzenstein has been on staff at Think:Kids working with families individually, running parent groups, developing our parent group curriculum, and co-leading national trainings. Dr. Katzenstein also helps families utilizing CPS through her private practice in Newton. Dr. Katzenstein received her M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley. She completed her Internship and Postdoctoral Fellowship in Clinical Psychology in the Department of Psychiatry at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. Dr. Katzenstein thoroughly enjoys her work with Think:Kids. She believes deeply in the philosophy underlying CPS – that all kids and parents do well if they can. 


Dr. Larry Epstein is Director of School-Based Services at Think:Kids, Assistant in Psychology in the Department of Psychiatry at Massachusetts General Hospital and Clinical Instructor in Psychology the Department of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Epstein has extensive experience utilizing and teaching the Collaborative Problem Solving across a variety of settings including educational and clinical programs and outpatient practice. For 17 years before joining Think:Kids, Dr. Epstein worked for the Cherry Creek School District in Denver, Colorado during which time he helped develop the district’s intensive treatment program for students with significant behavioral challenges. He is also a nationally certified bullying prevention trainer and helped found the non-profit organization Creating Caring Communities.

 

Dr. Epstein received his Ph.D. in Child Clinical Psychology from the University of Denver and completed his internship at The Children's Hospital in Denver, Colorado.

HikeMF

Thank you for visiting the registration page for HikeMF. HikeMF is an organization that will sponsor a yearly hike to raise awareness and funds for Myelofibrosis(MF) Research. MF belongs to a group of closely related blood cancers called Myeloproliferative Neoplasms(MPNs). Myeloproliferative Neoplasms are progressive blood cancers that can strike anyone at any age.

On August 19, 2014, I was diagnosed with Myelofibrosis. MF is a chronic leukemia in which scarring (fibrosis) of the bone marrow disrupts the normal production of blood cells. This disease affects approximately 16,500-18,000 people in the United States. The only cure is a Stem Cell Transplant (SCT), an option only used when a patient’s disease is in danger of converting to Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML).  Less than ten percent of patients qualify for an SCT. The survival rate for those who have an SCT is 50-70 percent.Fortunately, I was diagnosed early and am currently doing well. There are, however, others with MF for whom time is of the essence. It is because of this urgency that my family and I decided to form HikeMF. We felt compelled to create this fundraiser to help further research for a Myelofibrosis cure. After much consideration, we decided that our hike should benefit the MPN Research Foundation, who we felt best represented our mission.

 From the MPN Research Foundation: 

"Our primary mission is to promote, fund and support the most innovative and effective research into the causes, treatments, and potentially the cure for Essential Thrombocythemia, Polycythemia Vera and Myelofibrosis. Founded by patients, for patients, we work to promote collaboration across the scientific community and engage patients and the best minds in MPN research in the process of grant selection and evaluation."

Our hike at beautiful Moose Hill Wildlife Santuary will be about 90 minutes. We will have refreshments, raffles and a silent auction in the main building after the hike. This trail is good for all ages, so lace up your boots, bring your family and friends and join the fun for a great cause!

I would like to thank each of you for supporting HikeMF in its mission to fund research to find a cure for  Myelofibrosis. Your donation is greatly appreciated.

With Research There is Hope!

Love and good health from our family to yours,

Julie and Bob, Dan, Alyssa, Megan and Mike

Watch for updates on our FB page HikeMF and our webpage HikeMF.org.

We look forward to seeing you on the trail!
