An Evening with the Bingham Clinic

Published on August 31, 2017

The Bingham Clinic is hosting an interactive, evening event for parents who are interested in receiving help in becoming more effective parents with their adolescents. Dr. Mary Nord Cook is giving the keynote address for the Sixth Annual Pediatric Behavioral and Mental Health Symposium on Friday, Sept. 29. We are delighted she will be with us Thursday, Sept. 28 from 7 p.m. - 8:15 p.m.  This event will be at the Mountz Auditorium, adjacent to the Bingham Clinic on the second floor or Norton Downtown Hospital. At that time, she will offer some highlights from her symposium plenary talk, “Parenting Adolescents: Shifting from Manager to Consultant," to be given the next day. 

Dr. Cook is the CEO and medical director of EMPOWER Centers of Excellence in Family and Behavioral Health in Greenwood Village, Colo. She is a clinical associate professor of Psychiatry at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. An experienced clinical child and adolescent psychiatrist, Dr. Cook is an effective teacher and communicator with wonderful insights into children, youth and families.

Her presentation will offer ideas on how parents might optimally shift from the moment by moment management of their child to becoming a “consultant” to their adolescent as they move to adulthood. Clinical examples and brief video illustrations will make this topic come alive for all parents.

Dr. Allan Josephson, CEO of the Bingham Clinic and chief of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at University of Louisville, will interview Dr. Cook on dealing with today’s adolescent. This evening will be highly interactive, instructive and enjoyable. There’s no charge and all are welcome.
