Creating Conversations Speaker Series
February 23, 2016 7:00 p.m. “When to Worry and What to Do” 
Speaker: Jessica H. Thiede, Psy.D.
For: Middle and Upper School Parents
What to Expect: Adolescents who are struggling often give warning signs of their distress. Dr. Jessica Thiede will offer parents tips on how to recognize and understand these signs, and know what to do when they see them. While teenagers are dealing with heightened stress, harmful responses to that stress are preventable, said Thiede. While they experience physical maturation, a drive for independence, and changes in peer interaction, parents can give their teens the tools to emerge from adolescence with minimal turmoil. A Hyde Park clinical psychologist with a special focus in the treatment of trauma, anxiety, depression and co-morbid conditions, Dr. Thiede has a strong commitment to multidisciplinary collaboration, and has been a part of several initiatives to increase mental health awareness, and care within academia and the community.

November 17, 2015 7:00 p.m. “Mindfulness in Everyday Living”
Speaker: Shannon Jenson, LISW-S
Where: The Seven Hills School Hillsdale Campus, 5400 Red Bank Road, Cincinnati, 45227
For: All Seven Hills parents, families, and friends
What to Expect: Although mindfulness has been around for centuries, Western research now “proves” how mindfulness works in the body and brain to help change our brain chemistry and increase healthy living. From daily stress to high levels of anxiety triggered by traumatic events, to chronic pain and physical ailments, mindfulness approaches are being used to help increase effective ways to cope in life. Ms. Jensen will share ways parents can teach children to be mindful and practice self-compassion in the midst of daily pressures. An outpatient therapist at the Lindner Center of Hope, Ms. Jenson also has served as supervisor and clinical therapist for Family Services of the Cincinnati Area.

Oct. 1, 2015 7:00 p.m. “Lifting the Burden of Potential”
Speaker: Eileen Kennedy Moore, Ph.D.
Where: The Seven Hills School Hillsdale Campus, 5400 Red Bank Road, Cincinnati, 45227
For: All Seven Hills parents, families, and friends
What to Expect: Our culture’s relentless focus on "being impressive" places a huge burden on children that can leave them feeling anxious and disconnected, irritable, or filled with self-doubt. Very capable children are often the ones who feel this burden most keenly. The antidote is to help children to cultivate a broad self-definition that encompasses not only their abilities, but also their humanity and inner strengths. A trusted parenting expert who offers compassionate and practical solutions, Dr. Kennedy-Moore offers research-based strategies for helping children temper perfectionism, build relationships, and find joy in their daily lives. An internationally-published author, psychologist, and mother of four from Princeton, NJ., Dr. Kennedy-Moore has been a featured guest on The Today Show and other national television and radio shows. She is the co-author of a number of books, including Simple Strategies to Help Your Child Make Friends and the award-winning children's book, What About Me? 12 Ways to Get Your Parents' Attention Without Hitting Your Sister.
