PARENTAL ENGAGEMENT & SCHOOL CULTURE
Staff Development & Title I Workshop: How To Transform School Culture To Increase Parental Engagement (even the difficult ones)
Schools have a major problem...how in the world do you engage parents with the most challenging students? As a clinical psychologist, Dr. Tartt specializes in engaging the same parents to get involved in their child's education and mental health issues which often coincide. Dr. Tartt works with school systems, PTA's and individual schools to create parental engagement strategies that work for all parents. Engaging difficult, defensive, and challenging parents is truly an art and Dr. Tartt loves to train teachers and administrators on psychological strategies to engage them. Dr. Tartt also addresses how to engage men in being involved more in school as well. This workshop can be catered to parents, teachers and administrators upon request and involves a consultation to understand the culture and current parental engagement strategies prior to speaking.
FIXING OUR DAUGHTERS: RELATIONSHIPS:
Healthy Sex Education for Teen Girls:
Dr. Tartt has successfully worked with teen girls for over twenty years and has two daughters of his own. Hence, the area of sex education for teen girls around the topic of relationships is a critical need and interest. We all know men and women who have no idea how to make relationships work. So, why would we allow teenagers to figure it out on their own? It makes no sense, right? However, we do it everyday. We educate them on the basics of their anatomy, the dangers of sex, etc. but neglect the actual rules and skills of building and maintaining positive relationships. Dr. Tartt works with girls on how to train boys to treat them as queens to avoid heartbreak, teen pregnancy, codepency and low self-concept.
