A Community Circle: Talking About Our Youth

A Community Circle: Talking About Our Youth

Instructor: Dawn Menken

Wednesdays: January 10, 24, 31, and February 21, 28, 2018

10:30am-12noon Pacific Coast time

This international forum invites parents, educators and all those who work with, nurture, or advocate for youth to attend and discuss our joys, difficulties, and challenges. The class can be attended at a distance on line or in person at the Process Work Institute in Portland, Oregon. We will structure the class in a supervision or presentation format in which participants can present and discuss the professional or parenting challenges they are having and get guidance, support, and tips.

This series of classes is meant to create international community by engaging individuals from different countries and cultures. People are invited to discuss their work in schools, social agencies, or refugee organizations as well as everyday parenting issues with younger children and teens.

Participants need to sign up for the entire class. If you miss a class there will be an opportunity to view and listen to that missed session for one week after each class occurs.
