The annual Breakfast Series supports public and private school personnel who work with children and adolescents with social, emotional, and behavioral issues.
Topics have been chosen in response to identified needs.  All workshops will present an overview of current clinical information and potential application to the school setting.  Participants are encouraged to bring questions concerning these topics for discussion. 

The workshops are held February through May, from 8:00-10:00am (registration, 7:45am) in the Hartford Room, Commons Building, The Institute of Living. Registration is required.
