The Hamilton School District’s Get Connected Parent Network invites parents to hear from Pam Elgin, who will speak on “You Go Girl!” Jan. 12 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The presentation, which is free and open to the public, will be at Templeton Middle School, N59 W22490 Silver Spring, Sussex
It is probably the most challenging time in our history to raise a confident, empowered and healthy young woman. This challenge is ours as parents, educators and support people. We need to know what robs our young women of their self-esteem, confidence and precious time. We must be adequately armed with information to battle this enemy.
Elgin has been a licensed professional counselor for more than 20 years. Her professional experience includes facilitating individual, couple, family and group therapy in outpatient counseling, hospital inpatient, day treatment and intensive outpatient counseling settings.
Her work has focused on adolescent and adult issues with depression, anxiety, personality problems, eating disorders, family and marital problems. She also has developed a cutting-edge hospital treatment program for eating disorders.
The Get Connected Parent Network helps parents navigate children through their school years by providing:
– age-appropriate information;
– networking with other parents;
– presentations from professionals; and
– guidance and support.
Get Connected is sponsored by the Parent and Community Triangle, a partnership between the Hamilton School District, Sussex-area Outreach Services and community parents. Funding and support provided by United Way of Waukesha County “Helping Kids Succeed” initiative.
