2023 Webinars 


  • March 2023: A Conversation with Steven Hoersting Author of “Maintaining the Truth: A Parent and Caregiver’s Guide to Help Children and Adolescents Accept Their Gifts” (register)
    • Join us for an in depth conversation with Steve Hoersting, a mental health professional with decades of experience working with children and families. His book, Maintaining the Truth, begins with this reminder: “It is important to remember that no two children or adolescents are alike. However…  many will continue to treat these children and teens the same. Let us, together, attempt to discover and promote…  nurturing and problem-solving rather than punitive measures. The process begins with parents and other caregivers.” Join us to learn more. 


  • April 2023: “Palliative Parenting” A New Concept in Parenting Strategies (register)

    • Palliate means, “to ease symptoms or moderate intensity.” Parenting a child with mental health struggles is more challenging than most people realize. It becomes easier when parenting isn’t about “fixing” the child and their struggles, but instead is focused on improving quality of life and easing symptoms through love, acceptance, and empathy. Families and professionals, come learn more about the transformational power of Palliative Parenting.

  • June 2023: Biomarkers & Thermoregulation (register)
