Tell Parenting Program, Stressed or Depressed? – Nov 1, 2016

The next Tell Exceptional Parent Program schedule for Tuesday, November 1st, 2016 will address Stressed…or Depressed? Signs, Risk Factors and Ways to Address Depression in Adolescents. TELL (Tokyo English Life Line) provides an Exceptional Parenting Program (EPP) workshop series each school year which support global parents on a wide-range of topics. 

I have attended quite a few of the EPP programs over the past years and have found each one to be valuable to maintain some sanity in our crazy house!  The Exceptional Parenting Program, which runs from October to May, features six or more presentations by English speakers from a variety of disciplines and takes place at in Minami Aoyama, Tokyo.   The workshops are centered on providing insightful, practical information to increase awareness and understanding of various issues associated with raising and educating a child with learning differences/diverse needs. The workshops are free of charge, but donations are highly appreciated to support future EPP workshops.
