WCASD Holding Seminar on Teen Behavior

The West Chester Area School District will host a seminar on teen behavior for district parents on Thursday, Jan. 17.

The following is a press release from the West Chester Area School Board.

So your little boy or girl has become a teenager, seemingly in the blink of an eye! If you have one now or will in the near future, the Henderson High School Parent Teacher Organization wants you to know that, on occasion, it’s easy to be confused and frustrated by teen behavior and the choices they make. It’s quite normal to question whether the way interactions with our teens unfold is a result of normal teenage antics or something more – something for which help should be sought.  

A. Michael Blanche is a licensed clinical social worker with nearly 15 years of experience in providing direct clinical counseling to troubled teens and their families. He will conduct a workshop on this topic at the January meeting of the HHS PTO, and all parents are invited to attend. The meeting will take place on Thursday, January 17th at 7PM in the HHS auditorium.

Michael's workshop will help parents develop a better understanding of the differences between typical teen behavior and the symptoms that might suggest they need the help of a professional. Guidelines will also be provided to parents on ways to engage and initiate treatment when that step becomes necessary.

We hope you are able to join us as for our very informative January meeting. Even if you aren't currently experiencing such issues with your teen, it would be helpful to arm yourself with the tools and knowledge to quickly recognize the early signs of a more serious problem, and be better equipped to handle any situation that might arise.

Back on yours again, I see. Shouldn't you be in class abusing children this morning?

Any minutes available for this seminar if we're unable to attend?

the teacher's union covert website https://www.westchestervote.org/ should most definitely have a video of that seminar .. god knows they have videos every time a school board member needs to use the bathroom - if they can not help you, remember them at election time ... but post on this thread, and I might be able to help you out with a video

Yeah, Horvath, Star has a video for everything. By the way, Horvath, love your name!
