Parent Education: Parenting to Support Our Teens

Wednesday, December 2, 2020, 7 p.m.

In the third of six virtual community discussions that follow the chapters of Let's Talk: A toolkit for navigating teen substance use in Marin County, we will look closely at “Parenting to Support our Teen.”

The event moderator, Jaclynn Davis, authored the Let's Talk booklet. She received her Masters in Public Health and Social Work, and now focuses on adolescent health and youth development through her work with Huckleberry Youth Programs, local school districts, and teaching at Dominican University.

Guest expert, Jennifer Taylor, is the Founder of JET ED Consulting, a therapeutic academic consultation and consulting service. She is the Board Chair of the Therapeutic Consulting Association, a Board Member of Sky’s The Limit Fund and Founder of the Marin Chapter of Willows in the Wind. She volunteers with Horse Buddies, Bread & Roses and does pro bono work for Saving Teens. Ms. Taylor is a graduate of Dartmouth College and the University of San Francisco School of Law.

We will also hear from Laurie Dubin, the founder of Be the Influence - A parenting program which seeks to delay adolescent substance use and reduce rates of binge drinking, alcohol, cannabis, tobacco, and other drug use in our communities. An attorney who retired from the practice of law to raise her three children (who all attended Redwood High School), Laurie graduated from The University of Michigan with a B.A. in Political Science and received a J.D. from Tulane Law School.

Sophie Taubman will share the youth perspective on this topic. Sophie is a Senior at HS 1327 and is a member of the Marin Healthy Youth Partnerships Youth Advisory Council. She is interested in studying Public Health, and specifically appreciates opportunities to involve herself in her local community. Sophie was instrumental in organizing the two documentary screenings for our community this year, The First Day Filmand Alcohol: The Magic Potion.

You will have the opportunity to ask questions and share ideas. We hope you can join us.
