Sitkans Against Family Violence’s Julia Smith and Dr. Matt Hirschfeld, via phone from Anchorage, talk about an upcoming free lunch and learn event on July 8 at Harrigan Centennial Hall. From 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., SAFV and The All Alaska Pediatrics Partnership offer presentation as part of a series of community seminars. Lunch will be provided.

According to the Partnership, “Matt Hirschfeld, M.D., PH.D., Medical Director of Maternal Child Health at Alaska Native Medical Center, will speak about and lead a discussion on implementing Triple P in Sitka. The Triple P – Positive Parenting Program is one of the most effective evidence-based parenting programs in the world, backed up by more than 30 years of ongoing research. Triple P gives parents simple and practical strategies to help them confidently manage their children’s behavior, prevent problems developing and build strong, healthy relationships. Triple P is currently used in 25 countries and has been shown to work across cultures, socio-economic groups and in all kinds of family structures.”
