The cost of the seminar includes two one-hour presentations (one scheduled in the Fall and one in the Spring of the school year) for parents on the role of sleep, diet, exercise/play, and parental involvement in the learning process.
Neuropsychology for Educators: a four-hour introduction to brain-based education and principles. This seminar is designed for introducing district-level administrators and curriculum specialists to principles of brain-based education.
Talking with Your Kids about Sex and Sexuality: A one, two, or four-hour workshop for parents on how and when to educate children about sex and sexuality from the biblical Christian worldview. The multiple formats provide for deeper exploration of the parents’ role in sex education and additional time for questions.
Sex and Sexuality for Parents of Teens: A four-hour workshop designed for parents who want to engage their teens in productive discussions about sex, sexuality, and making good choices within the biblical Christian worldview.
Sexual Intimacy & Oneness: A two-hour workshop for couples. Designed for marriage retreats, church-based conferences, or as a part of marriage ‘tune-up’ for small groups. The workshop deals with martial sex from the biblical perspective and addresses the most common issues seen in marriage counseling related to sexual difficulties (competing requirements/finding time, too tired, changing bodies and body image, communication, hang-ups and baggage, and other stressors).
