Community Education

From Dr. Jochem

I am frequently contacted by community groups, schools, agencies and other organizations to provide public speaking services for the general public. I am happy to participate in these educational events as a community service and can work with groups of any size.

Topics drawing from the fields of mental health, wellness and behavioral change which are frequently requested for community presentations include the following:

  • Improving parent-adolescent communication
  • Adolescent development
  • Stress management
  • Improving self-esteem
  • Developing an optimistic outlook on life
  • Mood management
  • Depression in adolescents
  • Issues related to adolescent launching
  • Improving marital communication
  • Improving academic performance
  • Limit-setting with children and teenagers
  • Coping with stressful life events
  • Overview of the diagnosis & treatment of anxiety disorders
  • Overview of the diagnosis & treatment of mood disorders
  • Holiday depression
  • Coping with grief, bereavement or other major life stressors

Feel free to contact me by phone or email if you have an interest in arranging a community education event.
