Tom will be presenting two different sessions:

Raising a Foster Child to Thrive

Saturday June 15th 10:30-11:45 a.m.

As foster parents and advocates, we want our children to succeed, to thrive. But our kids are coming to us with a past that we cannot control or change.  How can we help our kids overcome past experiences and enable them to grow into thriving adults?


In this interactive session, we look at how to connect neuroscientific knowledge and practical application to develop confident adults equipped with the tools to achieve their potential. 

Teens and Their Choices

Saturday June 15th 2:30 – 3:45 pm

Why do our teens make the choices they do? What could they possibly be thinking? How can we guide them into adulthood with the tools they need to lead healthy, productive lives?


In this interactive session, we’ll explore the development, neuroscience, and internal and external factors that impact teen choices and behavior, so that you can better understand where your teen is coming from, why they are making the choices they are making. 


You’ll also gain a methodology for cultivating positive, productive communication and relationship with your foster teens.
