BSCO’s Second Parent Ed Evening, Parenting the Anxious Child, Scheduled for Nov. 14

BSCO’s Parent Education Series continues next month, as Bonny Slope welcomes Dr. Allan Cordova and his presentation, “Parenting the Anxious Child.”  This informative session will be held Monday, 11/14/16, from 7-8:30pm in the BSE Library.  

In this presentation, we'll discuss:

  • "typical" childhood anxieties
  • how to differentiate developmentally-expected worries and concerns from issues that might benefit from formal support or intervention
  • how you as a parent can feel more confident in refining your toolkit to help your child navigate anxiety.

Allan Cordova, PhD., Psychologist received his doctorate from the University of Denver and completed his internship and postdoctoral work at the University of Washington. He has worked with youth and families in hospital, clinic and school settings. 

A native Oregonian, he joined the Children's Program in 2002. He enjoys working with families and children of all ages. Areas of special interest include teenagers, couples, treatment of anxiety and depression, and family transitions.

Please join us for this important and valuable evening.  The Parent Education programs are a no-cost adults only series, made possible through BSCO’s annual budget and your generous Jog-a-Thon donation.  Questions can be directed to Megan O’Malley Cook at
