The Glenbard Parent Series: Navigating Healthy Parenting presents, "What Are They Thinking? Alcohol and Adolescent Brain Development" with Aaron White.
This workshop will be presented at noon and 7 p.m. Thursday, March 21, in the auditorium at Glenbard South, 23W200 Butterfield Road in Glen Ellyn.
The dangers of drugs and alcohol are a constant concern for parents and educators. On March 21, White, a leading researcher into the effect of alcohol on the developing brain, will assist us in gaining a better understanding of this crucial teen issue.
White offers expert insights into teenage brain development and the psychological impact of subjecting the brain to the effects of drugs and alcohol. Participants will discover how the brain of those age 10 to 20 is more sensitive to the toxic effects of drugs and alcohol, and how exposure to these agents can result in permanent damage in memory and brain function.
Get the facts and learn what works to reduce underage drinking and help adolescents make healthy choices and reduce risky decision-making.
White is an author and the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, program director for underage and college drinking prevention research.
Before the 7 p.m. workshop, join us at 6:30 p.m. for a “Let’s Talk:” parent-to-parent, drop-in discussion group. Representatives from all four Glenbard high schools will be on hand to discuss the safe celebration post prom events available to Glenbard students.
GPS is generously sponsored by the Cebrin Goodman Center, an affiliate of the Lillian and Larry Goodman Foundation, and in partnership with the Cooperative Association for Special Education (CASE).
This program is free and open to all. Students are strongly encouraged to attend.
