Creating Conversations Speaker Series
September 30, 2014   7:00 p.m. “The Pressured Child”
Speaker: Michael Thompson, Ph.D.
Where: The Seven Hills School Hillsdale Campus, 5400 Red Bank Road, Cincinnati, 45227

For: All Seven Hills parents, friends, early childhood organizations, and community partners

What to Expect:
A household name, Michael Thompson is a dedicated speaker and traveler who has appeared on The Today Show, The Oprah Winfrey Show, ABC 20/20, and CBS 60 Minutes, to name a few. Michael Thompson will share stories from the trenches, taking parents and teachers into the school day experience of children, illuminating how students manage their school careers, and how educators and parents can best support them along the way. He describes the psychological journey that children experience during their years in school. He says children are almost never judging themselves by grades; they are always monitoring their own development and constantly searching for three things: connection, recognition, and a sense of power.
Whether young students experience mostly success, have chronic but manageable struggle, or experience fury and despair, each journey has its own pressures. To learn more about Michael Thompson and his work, visit his website, michaelthompson-phd.com.

For: Ninth grade Seven Hills students and their parents
What to Expect:
A favorite among the Seven Hills community, James Lingo of FCD (Freedom from Chemical Dependency) will speak about the vital role communication plays in families with teens and young adults, especially. One of the cornerstones of FCD is communication, and James will spend an evening with ninth graders and their parents to strengthen the ties that are crucial for navigating adolescence. James will work closely with parents and students in small groups to listen to and discuss relevant topics that will be presented for conversation.
James brings his expertise to Seven Hills as a teacher and facilitator for helping adolescents make healthy choices. Freedom from Chemical Dependency has worked in partnership with Seven Hills for more than 30 years.

April 16, 2015, 8:30 a.m. “Practical Parenting”
Speaker: Dr. Andrew Sweeney and Dr. Shelby Werner, child psychologists
Where: The Seven Hills School Hillsdale Campus, 5400 Red Bank Road, Cincinnati, 45227
For: Parents and friends of students in pre-kindergarten through grade two
What to Expect:
Do you have trouble coming up with effective consequences for your child's misbehavior? Do you feel guilty because your child's behavior makes you not want to spend time with him or her? Join child psychologists Drs. Sweeney and Werner, as they discuss evidence-based parenting techniques for improving the parent-child relationship and increasing compliance with instructions. This presentation will share ideas about how to improve relationships with your child/ren through play, how to have more fun with them, and how to teach them to more appropriately follow instructions.
Drs. Sweeney and Werner will share ideas on how to use attention/praise and planned ignoring to shape children’s positive, appropriate behavior. In addition, parents will learn ways to offer clear instructions that young children are more likely to follow. “Practical Parenting” will offer parents a unique toolkit that will encourage less worrisome and more enjoyable parenting. To learn more about Drs. Sweeney and Werner and their work go to Basset Psychological Services.
