On Saturday, February 11 from 10-11:15 a.m., Maureen P. Tillman, L.C.S.W., will lead a workshop on preparing students for successful college transitions.
The workshop is free of charge and will take place in the Columbia High School library at 17 Parker Avenue, Maplewood, NJ.
Participants will learn how to give teens crucial life skills that will serve them well on the college terrain. Highlights will include the latest research about the overall health of college students and the stressors they face during the freshman year. According to Tillman, parents and teens who are armed with this information can realistically and confidently prepare for the transition. The session will also address critical issues for parents who have teens with learning disabilities, ADD/ADHD and mental health issues, as well as parents’ changing roles during high school and beyond.
