The second discussion of our Lunch & Learn series will be held Wednesday, December 14th from 12-1:30PM at the YMCA. Lunch will be provided! The topic of this Lunch & Learn is supporting teens navigating academic pressures. This Lunch & Learn will be facilitated by Positive Directions' licensed clinician, Karlene Barnett, LADC. Karlene holds a plethora of knowledge about the teen population, as she facilitates a virtual weekly High School Stressor Support group at Positive Directions. In this group, she works with teens to identify stressors, learn coping skills, deal with family/peer pressure, and develop strategies to maintain grades.


On November 16th, Positive Directions and the Westport Weston YMCA hosted the first Lunch & Learn of the series, facilitated by Positive Directors Clinical Supervisor, Frank Castorina! Frank did a wonderful job of guiding the group through a conversation regarding how stress levels affect children's brain development and provided the group with a myriad of local and regional teen-specific resources and supports.

We hope you can join us at the YMCA for our second discussion on December 14th!
