Presenter: Susan Bauerfeld, Ph.D.

Keeping up with the heavily scheduled life of a student demands an endless stream of transitions from one activity to the next: one subject/class/teacher to the next; home to school; school to sports or other after-school activities and homework, etc. Successfully negotiating a transition involves several steps and requires many skills. Time pressure, anxiety and undeveloped skills can all interfere with successful transitioning and contribute to transition-related meltdowns, which are common, particularly disruptive and challenging to manage. In this talk. Susan Bauerfeld, Ph.D., a licensed clinical psychologist, parent consultant/coach and ADHD coach, will present strategies for building the skills required for successfully negotiating transitions in ways that promote self-regulation, competence and healthy self-esteem.

Dr. Bauerfeld’s passion is teaching skills that lead to positive and connected relationships, especially the skills of self-regulation, anxiety management and effective communication. Combining the experiences and challenges she encountered while raising her own three boys with expertise in psychotherapy, neuropsychology, cognitive remediation and ADHD coaching, she works to help parents strengthen their most powerful tool – a supportive, connective relationship with their children. In presentations, workshops, individual consultations, coaching and psychotherapy sessions, Dr. Bauerfeld offers compassion, humor, understanding and education as she helps parents (and their kids) develop the skills they need to manage their worries and challenges more efficiently, so they can reconnect with themselves and one another, learn more effectively and lead calmer, more capable and connected lives.
