May Speaking Event – Save the Date!!

On Monday, May 18, 2020, the Parenting Success Network will be holding their 7th Annual Speaking Event, with Dr. Chandra Gosh Ippen, as their Keynote Speaker. Dr. Ippen is the Associate Director of the Child Trauma Research Program, University of California, San Francisco. She will be presenting her research on trauma and diversity-informed practice at the conference, but can also speak eloquently to groups of community members and parents about trauma and practical solutions. We love that she is a children’s book author and creates videos for children to understand stress and trauma through Piplo Productions.

Later that evening Dr. Ippen will be speaking to the parents of Linn, Benton and Lincoln counties at the Corvallis High School Theater, from 6-8:00pm. We have been the lucky recipient of conference speakers from the OSU Conference for the last several years, and they have always delivered informative and down-to-earth information to our parents.

Please plan on attending! More information will be forthcoming as we get closer to the event.
