Louisville, Ky. (August 16, 2013)—The Kosair Charities Children’s Peace Center at Our Lady of Peace, part of KentuckyOne Health, will host Peace for Parents in Oldham County, a series of free seminars to help guide parents through difficult issues.
 
The first seminar will take place on Tuesday, September 17 at 6:30 p.m. at Crestwood Elementary, 6500 West Highway 146. Speaker Gretchen Rinehart, a social worker at Our Lady of Peace, will host a seminar on what parents and professionals can do to prevent and address bullying.
Peace for Parents is open to parents, teachers, counselors and other concerned individuals that would like to learn more about how to face challenging issues with children and adolescents.
No single factor puts a child at risk of being bullied and bullying can happen anywhere. Some studies have shown that more than 50 percent of kids experience or witness bullying, and the long term affects can be devastating.
“Through this seminar, our expert will provide information on how to best address and prevent bullying for our kids,” said Jennifer Nolan, president, Our Lady of Peace. “As the largest and most comprehensive private provider of child/adolescent inpatient psychiatric care in the country, we are proud to extend our expertise into the Oldham County community.”
 
Two more Peace for Parents seminars will take place this fall in Oldham County. Kim Dwyer-Moore, board certified behavior analyst, will host a seminar managing difficult childhood behaviors at home and school on October 15 at Crestwood Elementary.  Michael O’Brien, intervention specialty and behavior analyst graduate student and Celese McGinnis, behavior analyst practicum student, will co-host a seminar on the same topic at LaGrange Elementary on November 14.
 
Interested individuals are encouraged to register in advance. Registration is free and can be done by calling Lisa Prewitt at 502.432.2011 or email at lisaprewitt@kentuckyonehealth.org.
