Brainstorm Book Club: Continuing the Conversation about the Teenage Brain

**Please note: Our next meeting will be Wednesday, February 8th (7-8:30 pm). Unfortunately, the Feb. 1st and Feb. 15th meetings had to be cancelled and rescheduled due to conflicting school events.

Please join us to continue the conversation about Dr. Dan Siegel’s book “Brainstorm: The Power and Purpose of the Teenage Brain.” Each week we will discuss ideas from his book and how to apply them to our own parenting. We will also try out some of Dr. Siegel’s “Mindsight tools.” The conversation will be led by Kirsten Daehler (educator/ Gunn parent) and Maria Daehler (child psychiatrist/Gunn parent). You are welcome to attend even if you haven’t read the book. We will have a few copies of the book for purchase ($18.50, cash or check only). Please contact Kirsten Daehler,, if you have any questions.
