 MATFORCE Lunch ‘n Learn – Bridging the Gap:  Talking to Youth About Drugs

The April 14th MATFORCE Lunch ‘n Learn will address generational differences that can hinder talking to youth about drugs.   We all know that it is important to talk with children about the harms of drug abuse.  But the differences in how generations communicate can prove a hindrance when talking about something as important as drugs and other dangerous behaviors.

Brandon Bonney, M. Ed., will lead this Lunch ‘n Learn helping audience members learn more about these key differences and the most effective ways to communicate. Anyone working with youth will learn important communication tools from this presentation.

Bonney is a retired Lieutenant from the Prescott Valley Police Department.  He currently serves on the Board of Directors for West Yavapai Guidance Clinic and also teaches courses on generational leadership, school safety, stress management as well as suicide prevention through DeLung International.

The Lunch ‘n Learn will be held on Thursday, April 14, 2016, from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM at the Board of Supervisors Room, Yavapai County Administration Building, 1015 S. Fair St., Prescott and teleconferenced to the Yavapai County Cottonwood Annex, 10 South 6th St., Cottonwood. It is free and open to the public. Brown-bag lunches are welcome.
