ADHD, Autism and Epigenetics
No cost for this presentation.
Judy Richardson-Mahre, LAMFT, Partners in Parenting

Research has been unsuccessful in finding one gene responsible for ADHD/Autism - it is instead a group of genes responsible.  The debate of nature vs. nurture is not a debate anymore - it's both.  So how does this information impact how we address and deal with ADHD /Autism through other natural methods - including exercise, diet, supplements, sleep, etc.

Electronics And The Brain—Is It Really An Addiction?
No cost for this presentation.
Barb Andrus, B.S., CAPS, Partners in Parenting

Have you ever tried to limit electronics but then given in because your child wouldn’t stop badgering you?  Do you wonder if it is affecting your child long-term? You will learn the effect that overuse of electronics has on the brain and how that affects the fight/flight system in the brain and creates a cascade of stress chemicals that overwhelms the brain effecting your child’s ability to manage their feelings, mood, and behavior. You will learn strategies to help restore health and harmony to your family and allow the brain to rest, heal, and reboot itself allowing your child to better manage their feelings and moods. You will learn strategies to creating healthier boundaries around electronic usage and strategies that are key to having a calmer, more cooperative child and family home life.
