Do you work with families of young children? Want to learn how you can provide them with a blueprint for better parenting? Join us for an exciting webinar that will feature the research of  Gerald Newmark, PhD, author of the acclaimed book, “How to Raise Emotionally Healthy Children: Meeting the Five Critical Needs of Children…and Parents Too!”.
