Welcome to my first blog!

There has been a great deal of concern and awareness generated in the South Bay community in the last six months in regards to teenage alcohol and drug use, and a lot of work being planned for education and prevention programs, particularly for parents.  I have been presenting a talk on “Raising Drug Free Kids” also titled “Kids in Today’s Pressure Cooker”.  The talk has been well received by numerous audiences, including Torrance Memorial’s Miracle of Living at the Beach, presented at Shade Hotel; South Bay Networking Professionals; South Bay Employee Assistance Professionals, Northrop Grumman employees, and a group of professional counselors at Sovereign Health in Culver City.  I discuss very practical, parental strategies for improving self esteem, family communication, and recognizing issues related to drugs and alcohol.  We wanted to make the presentation available to you as well.  Please just click on the YouTube link below.
