Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In our work with young people, parents and guardians often ask how to broach difficult topics with their students (children). The facilitator will engage participants in a discussion about ways that parents and guardians can discuss alcohol and drugs with their college bound or current college student. The facilitator hopes that participants will leave the session with concrete tools that can be shared with parents and guardians who have college bound or a student currently attending college.
