Parents, community child care providers and all community members are invited to a presentation by Dr. Stuart Ablon of Think:Kids on Monday, September 24 from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at the MHS/Community Auditorium. The event is free and open to the public.

Dr. Ablon will outline an approach called Collaborative Problem Solving for helping children with behavioral challenges. He promotes ways to help children develop skills related to problem solving, flexibility and frustration tolerance.

Dr. Ablon is the founder and director of Think:Kids in the Department of Psychiatry at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston and associate professor at Harvard Medical School.

“Dr. Ablon’s message of how to support our students is incredibly powerful and has reshaped how we’re working with students,” said Matt Cretsinger, Director of Special Services with the Marshalltown Community School District. “His model provides sound strategies and tools that help us teach our students the social, emotional, behavioral and mental health skills they need to be successful in school and in life.”
