Workshops

At Southfield, we offer “Annual Parent Discussion Series”, Professional Development, and Community Presentations and Workshops.

Samples of our presentations are below. For a complete list of offerings, click here.

The Southfield Center for Development offers two distinct ways of sharing information with our community:

 

Our specialists are available to speak to schools, parent groups, educators, pediatric and medical professionals, and community associations.

Speaking to groups of concerned parents, medical/mental health professionals, and educators has always been integral to the mission of The Southfield Center. We believe that the sharing of information is the first step toward helping children, teens, and their families. Please contact us if you would like schedule a presentation to your group.
