by Crystal Collier PhD (Author)
ABOUT THE NEUROWHEREABOUTS GUIDE
A paperback book
Dr. Crystal Collier offers a validated neurodevelopmental approach to help parents raise their kids to refrain from engaging in high-risk behaviors. In the guide, Dr. Collier shows what healthy brain development looks like, how risky behaviors can derail that trajectory, and how to keep development on track. Illustrated in a fun, infographic style, The NeuroWhereAbouts Guide puts at parents’ fingertips the developmentally appropriate prevention science they need to set children up for success from elementary school to college.
Promotional price made available by Smart Families and is offered only to Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston Teachers. Limited availability.
INSIDE THE GUIDE
The NeuroWhereAbouts Guide includes tools, activities, contracts and scripted talks for 18 high-risk behavior topics, such as alcohol, marijuana, other illicit drugs, technology overuse, vaping and e-cigarettes, pornography, body image and eating issues, self-injury, suicide, dating violence, risky sexual behavior and more. The Guide gives parents the scientific basis for setting healthy boundaries and limits regarding the many risky behaviors faced by today’s youth, and what those limits should look like at each phase of brain development. This is the practical information parents, teachers and counselors need to be ‘Brain-Savvy’ — to know what prevention measures to take, and when — to help kids make healthy choices for life.
