Parents: Want to know what your teens don’t want you to know? Make plans to attend Liberty Christian School’s Parent Survival Seminar on Thursday, September 28 at 8:30 a.m. Called “What Teens Don’t Want You to Know,” the event is free and open to the public. Liberty Christian hosted the same seminar in February and has brought it back for a morning session to help accommodate parents’ schedules.  

Liberty Christian’s head counselor, Dr. Bridget Melson, PsyD., MFT, will lead the seminar and include topics such as the following: Survival Tips and Tools for Today's Parents; Sex, Drugs, and Social Media — How They Affect the Brain; Different Challenges Today’s Teens Face; Coping Methods and Feelings About Image; and Things Teens are Doing that You Need to Know.

Dr. Melson has worked in education and with teens in private practice for more than 25 years, holding a master’s in counseling psychology and a doctorate in psychology.

Most recently, Dr. Melson completed a post-doctorate program at Duke University that earned her a certificate in medical neuroscience. She also completed a seven-week certification course in understanding addiction on a deeper level, enabling her to better recognize the signs of addictive personalities so she can help others be proactive, providing ways to stop impending addictive behaviors.

Her study of the brain this past summer through Duke University included brain development and what students can do to use it to its fullest potential.
