Dr Shanon Brooks Aug Visit to PDX/Vancouver 2009
In gearing up for the September 25-26, 2009 Face to Face #2 Seminar, Dr Shanon Brooks was in town and visited with people throughout the greater Portland Region. (Vancouver, WA; Salem, Oregon City; and Beaverton)
We were privileged to learn about a new book coming out in November 2009 called TJEd for Teens -- it gave us some interesting history about where the Teenage term was first used, and the consequence this concept has brought about the 'Midlife-Crisis' of our times.
He introduced some questions that every teen can ask themselves which will help them focus on the correct principles and help them make better decisions. As we parents know, the teen years are transformational in the direction a person makes for a lifetime. He shared with us some of the "Transformational Life Questions" every person needs to ask themselves.
The response by attendees' was incredibly positive. It has helped many of us to re-focus as parents so we can be more effective. Definitely a book on my list to get!
As a follow-up we also offered a conference call on August 26, 2009 to answer specific questions. He also gave us some insightful new information that helps us understand more about the content of the Face to Face Seminar#2: TJEd Revisited-You, Not Them (September 25-26, 2009)
Here's the recording of the call:
