We received a grant from the Maine State Library Fund for the purpose of creating a quiet maker space. These grants to help libraries offer new programming come from funds that Maine citizens check as a voluntary contribution when filing Maine State income tax.  We hope you enjoy this new program.

Tuesday, October 23, 2018 from 9:00 a.m.-10:30 a.m. “Take Action Against Bullying” Presented by Presented by Susie Pitcher, Regional Parent Support Coordinator Bullying has become such a widespread problem it is now being recognized as a major mental health concern for children and youth, having been found to leave long-term emotional scars and psychological effects similar to anxiety disorders and posttraumatic stress. This workshop will help you identify the warning signs of both the victim and the bully. Prevention and effective coping skills will be explored. Webinar Only.

Tuesday November 27, 2018 from 9:00 a.m.-10:30 a.m. “Impulsivity & Disruptive Behaviors in Children & Youth” Presented by Susie Pitcher, Regional Parent Support Coordinator All children have outbursts from time to time; however, some children have chronic problems in their ability to regulate emotions and behaviors even when adverse consequences may occur. This lack of self-control can cause significant distress or impairment in a child’s or youth’s life. A number of different diagnoses are unified by impulsive and disruptive behaviors, including oppositional defiant disorder (ODD), conduct disorder (CD), and impulse control disorder (ICD). In this workshop you will learn more about the disorders defined in the chapter on disruptive, impulse-control, and conduct disorders by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5), what treatments are available, and what parents/caregivers can do to better respond to disruptive behavior. Webinar Only
