“His Brain/Her Brain: Parenting Our Sons & Daughters for Success”

This insightful, free presentation will be given by Pat Crum-Lubben, Parent Educator from the Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Anyone who has parented both boys and girls knows that they act and learn differently. But do you know why?

Pat Crum-Lubben, a specialist in children’s Brain Based Learning, knows why.    She will share her knowledge in a presentation for parents that will be offered on two different evenings in two locations in Oakland County. This program will help parents understand the differences in boys and girls and how their brain development affects the way they function in life and learning. In an eye-opening and enlightening program parents will learn effective strategies for responding to each gender.

Pat Crum-Lubben is a nationally recognized trainer/consultant for the Gurian Institute and director and co-founder of the Family Nurturing Center of Michigan. She has 25 years experience as a professional trainer, parent educator, presenter and group facilitator. She is also a Parent Counselor with the Child Protection Team at DeVos Children’s Hospital. Pat holds certifications in Brain-Based Learning and in Responding to Trauma and Loss in Children.
In an effort to reach as many parents as possible, Oakland County Youth Assistance is sponsoring this program in two locations in Oakland County.

“Oakland County covers such a large area, so we decided to offer the program at two locations in the county to make it more convenient for parents to attend. Parents can attend at Novi High School on October 24 and at Baker Middle School in Troy on October 25,” says Rosemary Spatafora, chairperson of the Oakland County Youth Assistance Family Education Advisory Committee.

The program is free of charge but pre-registration is required. For registration and further information call 248-858-0051 or email ocya@oakgov.com. A flyer for the program can be downloaded at www.oakgov.com/ya.

A program for professionals on “Trauma and Loss in Children” will be presented by Ms. Crum-Lubben at Oakland Schools on Thursday, October 25. Call 248-858-0051, email ocya@oakgov.com or visit www.oakgov.com/ya for info.
