Translating Sleep Science into Sleep Solutions for tweens, teens and their families – Evidence based and reality tested interventions to improve teen sleep

Saturday, November 2, 2019 from 9 am to 1 pm

Audience: For parents of 4th through 9th graders

Where: Julia Morgan School for Girls (Mills College Campus) 5000 MacArthur Blvd., Oakland, CA

This presentation will focus on reviewing the most relevant research on teen sleep and translating it into pragmatic sleep interventions that can be implemented at home. Dr. Thompson will try to address the questions that so many parents are asking about how they can help your tweens and teens get the sleep she or he needs?  Based on the most current sleep science and evidence-based cognitive and behavioral interventions to improve sleep, this workshop will provide simple, implementable interventions to help teens  change their sleep habits so that they can feel more alert and ready to face life’s challenges.
