Please join us for a FREE workshop on healthy youth brain development and how a variety of high-risk behaviors can derail that trajectory. Parents will also learn how they help can prevent adolescents from engaging in these behaviors.

Crystal Collier, Ph.D., herself a person in long-term recovery, comes to us from Houston, Texas via Zoom. She is a therapist and educator who works with adolescents and adults with mental illness, behavior concerns and substance use disorders. Her areas of expertise include adolescent brain development, prevention programming, parent coaching and addiction. Dr. Collier received the Outstanding Research Award from the Association of Alternative Peer Groups and was named Counselor of the Year by the Houston Counseling Association. Her book, The NeuroWhereAbouts Guide, includes prevention science tools for families who want to prevent youth risky behavior.

Summer is one of the highest risk times for youth to try alcohol and other drugs for the first time. This workshop will support parents’ efforts to reduce risks and encourage healthy choices.

Join Us! Tuesday, May 11th 6:30-8 PM via Zoom
