Joan Leary

Psychiatry/psychology Birmingham, US
I will be presenting a "Social Media Workshop for Counselors," who communicate by social media to their teen clients.

Denise Ford LCSW

Psychiatry/psychology Charlotte, US
Clinical social worker and parent in private practice with my husband Henry, also a clinical social worker. We see adults and adolescents in clinical, forensic, and judicial settings. We have both worked with adolescents in all levels of care for over 25 years. New technology is a clinical concern of tsunami magnitude not only for kids but also for adults, as there is no body of knowledge or history of social norms and mores to provide guidance on this technological frontier. And people are getting into trouble, losing valuable relationships, and stumbling into new and dangerous territory without a guide. We aim to provide our clients with direct, clear cut advise and encourage them to be Internet savvy, to be cautious and to not be afraid to step away from the technological devices and unplug when circumstances indicate it.

Her success in helping clients quickly identify, manage, and overcome, the specific challenges of separation and divorce has led her to become the nation’s leading relationship expert.

Laura Fobler

Psychiatry/psychology NL
Laura received a master’s degree in Psychology and has been working as an independent coach and trainer since 2005. In 2008 she was licensed as a Gordon® Instructor. “During the years that I have been working as a coach, I got intrigued by the fact that hardly anyone was able to name true qualities of himself. Most people also lack a healthy dose of confidence. Apparently, despite being well intended, most parents need to acquire more knowledge and skills to make a success of their parenting. Furthermore, it became apparent to me that all my coaching clients needed to turn things around was acceptance, support and inspiration. Raising a child is the most wonderful gift, but in order to reach a phenomenal result, parents need powerful tools. I have collected the best possible tools available. I have been inspired by a variety of people, like Carl Rogers, Thomas Gordon, Marshall Rosenberg, Aletha Solter and many others!”
