About Natick
map
Natick Massachusetts was established in 1650 and is a suburban industrial town located on the upper basin of the Charles and Concord Rivers. It is nestled beside the Massachusetts Turnpike and Route 9 making it very convenient.

Form its earliest colonial days Natick was a prime target for development because it had good agricultural land as well as fish runs and water power. Natick also supported itself with some lumbering and grist and sawmills were established. Local lore claims that several loads of men from Natick journeyed out to the California gold rush in 1849 and returned with enough capital to start their independent businesses. With the first shoe sole maker in 1827 the shoe industry dominated the community by the early 19th century and shoes were shipped to the western and southern markets by 1830. By the 1880’s Natick was the third largest manufacturer of shoes in the country.

Today Natick has become an industrial Boston-oriented suburban community that includes intense strip mall development on Route 9.

Think Differently: A New Approach for Parenting, Teaching and Treating Children with Behavioral Challenges

               

Think Differently: A New Approach for Parenting, Teaching and Treating Children with Behavioral Challenges

Sponsored by the Natick Public Schools

Morse Institute Library ?-? 14 East Central St. ?-? Boston, MA

Friday, April 10th, 2015?-? 8:30 A.M. - 4:00 P.M.

WORKSHOP OVERVIEW

Think:Kids, a program in the Department of Psychiatry at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), has partnered with Principal Kirk Downing of Brown Elementary and the Natick Public Schools to offer a one-day training program featuring Dr. Larry Epstein. This one-day introductory training provides a foundation for professionals and parents interested in learning the evidence-based approach to understanding and helping children and adolescents with behavioral challenges called Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS). This training serves as the prerequisite for our professional intensive training seminars (Tier 1 and Tier 2). 

The CPS approach provides a new way of understanding and helping kids who struggle with behavioral challenges. Challenging behavior has traditionally been thought of as willful and goal oriented which has led to approaches that focus on motivating better behavior using reward and punishment programs. If you’ve tried these strategies and they haven’t worked, this workshop is for you! At Think:Kids we have some very different ideas about why these kids struggle. Research over the past 30 years demonstrates that for the majority of these kids their challenges result from a lack of crucial thinking skills when it comes to things like problem solving, frustration tolerance and flexibility. The CPS approach, therefore, focuses on helping adults teach the skills these children lack while resolving the chronic problems that tend to precipitate challenging behavior. Through lecture, videos, case examples and role plays this one-day training will help you shift your thinking and approach to foster positive relationships with these children and encourage growth in areas of self-regulation, communication and problem solving. 

WORKSHOP PRESENTER

Dr. Larry Epstein is Director of School-Based Services at Think:Kids, Assistant in Psychology in the Department of Psychiatry at Massachusetts General Hospital and Clinical Instructor in Psychology the Department of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Epstein has extensive experience utilizing and teaching the Collaborative Problem Solving across a variety of settings including educational and clinical programs and outpatient practice.

Travel & Taste Ethiopia: Hidden Jewel of Africa
Ethiopia might not be the most obvious choice as a destination in Africa. It lacks the classic safari appeal of Kenya and South Africa, and its infrastructure is not as well developed, but Ethiopia’s lack of renown will not last long. With its cast of hundreds of bird species (thirty-one of which are endemic to Ethiopia and Eritrea), spectacular concentrations of waterfowl and shorebirds, many interesting mammals, and breathtaking landscapes, it is a truly exciting destination indeed. Bird photographer and artist Luke Seitz traveled to Ethiopia for a month during his winter break this year, with a particular focus on gathering video footage of the endemic bird species. His talk will highlight the fascinating diversity of habitats in Ethiopia, from 14,000-foot mountains to lowland acacia savannah, and promises to be full of stunning photographs and videos of rarely seen birds and mammals. Location-themed buffet dinner and lecture or lecture only. Pre-registration required for dinner by 6pm Tuesday, February 10. Online registration available. Instructions and Directions: Please let us know at the time of registration if there are any dietary restrictions.

When: Feb 12, 2015 6 PM to Feb 12, 2015 8 PMin Natick, Massachusetts
Cost: Dinner/Lecture: $26M;$32NM/Lecture only: $12M; $15NM (7:30 start) (Thu, 12 Feb 2015 18 )

Travel & Taste South Africa: On Safari and off the Beaten Path
South African safaris are famous for a spectacular array of wildlife that includes predators and prey, grazers, browsers, and scavengers. You probably know "the Big Five": lion, leopard, elephant, Cape buffalo and rhinoceros; but can you name "The Ugly Five?" The country also hosts a rich avifauna from eagles and chanting-goshawks to hornbills and bee-eaters. In addition to exploring the savannahs, our journey will include other beautiful habitats: the desert-like Karoo, the heath-like Fynbos, the coastline, and the Swartberg and Drakensberg mountains. Location-themed buffet dinner and lecture or lecture only. Pre-registration required for dinner by 6pm Tuesday, February 24. Online registration available. Instructions and Directions: Please let us know at the time of registration if there are any dietary restrictions.
