What’s Going On
Each month, SPMS PTA is screening a documentary or film that will hopefully inspire, inform, or at the very least ignite conversations. We follow-up each film with an open Q&A with experienced, knowledgeable professionals from our community.
99 Coping Skills Poster –Following the screening of ANGST, this poster came to us as something that could be useful in times of stress. Hope it helps you too.
ANGST — screened Wednesday October 17 (SPMS) and 29 (SPHS).
Q&A afterward was with Natasha Prime, MSW School Social Worker, Child Welfare Counselor; Heather Bland, MFT; and Tina Bradley Trujillo, PhD.
