The SCC has brought national bestselling authors and experts on parenting, such as Madeline Levine, Brad Sachs, Julie Lythcott-Haims, Catherine Steiner-Adair, Wendy Mogel, Ana Homayoun, and Lynn Lyons to discuss resiliency, anxiety, grit, the perils of over-parenting, disconnecting from technology, virtual learning during the pandemic, and connecting and communicating with one another. In conjunction with the speaker event each year, we organize book talks in the schools prior to the event featuring the speaker’s works. We have hosted critical presentations on stress and teen depression, dating abuse, drug and alcohol prevention for parents and high schools students. Our Board and Mental Health Committee review current literature in conjunction with considering current issues we are seeing in the community to select topics of broad interest.
