FROM THE HEART         NEWS FROM KIDS FIRST October 2012 

Greetings to our friends and supporters,    

October at Kids First brings lots of activity; we have Support Groups for Children & Adolescents I, II and III (which are all filled to capacity) which started in September and is running throughout this month, as well as the Next Step - Putting Conflict Aside group scheduled to start on October 1st. Our ICOPE (Intensive Co-Parenting) program is full and starts later this month as well. In addition, our Separation, Divorce & Dads group and our Kids First Program for Stepparents have sessions available in October (please see schedule below).   

 

Most importantly, our Annual Fall Conference for Professionals ("The Perils of Virtual Venom: Latest Issues in Social Media & Electronic Discovery) will take place on Friday, October 26th, at the Harraseeket Inn in Freeport. If you're thinking of registering, do so before October 1st for a $10 discount in price!

 

Warm regards, 

 Peg Libby
