Discussion/Signing: ‘Unlocking Parental Intelligence’

Raising Astoria is holding a Parenting Event: “Unlocking Parental Intelligence: Finding Meaning in Your Child’s Behavior,” with nationally renowned therapist and author Dr. Laurie Hollman, Ph.D.

Dr. Hollman is a psychoanalyst with specialized clinical training in infant-parent, child, adolescent, and adult psychotherapy. She has written extensively on parenting for various publications, including the Psychoanalytic Study of the Child, The International Journal of Infant Observation, The Inner World of the Mother, Newsday’s Parents & Children Magazine, Long Island Parent, Moms Magazine, Active Family Magazine, and Huffington Post. She will lead a discussion and sign her new book, “Unlocking Parental Intelligence: Finding Meaning in Your Child’s Behavior” at Raising Astoria, a community and education center for local families and little Astorians, infants through age 4. New, seasoned, soon-to-be parents all have questions about parenting and the various behaviors of children at different stages of their life. Dr. Hollman lifts the curtain on these questions by helping parents become “meaning-makers who understand the significance behind their kids’ behaviors.” She’ll discuss the five steps to help parents solve problems by learning what their kids think, want, intend, and feel.

All parents are welcome to this free event on Wednesday, May 11, from 6:30 pm until 8 pm. Books will be available for sale on-site through the Astoria Bookshop.

Raising Astoria is located at 26-11 23rd Avenue in Astoria.
