Dr. David Walsh to visit Hartsville
Dr. David Walsh, PhD, will be visiting Hartsville on Friday-June 5, 2015 at the Butler Heritage Foundation Administration Building, to speak to parents, educators, social workers, and other members of the community about teenage brain development.
Dr. Walsh will share how the teenage brain develops, the factors that can affect the brain’s development, and other valuable information. He is a published author of the book, “Why Do They Act That Way?: A Survival Guide to the Adolescent Brain for You and Your Teen” which talks more about adolescent behavior and what teachers, parents and other adult mentors can do to help them deal with particular challenges.
Dr. Walsh is considered a leading authority on children, teens, family life, and the impact of technology on children’s health and development. He is on the faculty of the University of Minnesota and is a trusted expert on these subjects.
Darlington County First Steps will be hosting this event on behalf of the South Carolina Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy. This conversation correlates closely with several of the programs DCFS operates such as the Personal Responsibility Education program and their Parents Are First program, which targets adolescents, teens and young people.
The Butler Heritage Foundation Auditorium Administration Building is located on 1103 South Sixth Street, Hartsville, SC and will open up the doors to the public for this free event, beginning at 9:30 a.m. For more information or to RSVP, contact Darlington County First Steps at 843-857-3148.
