Workshops for Education Professionals, Mental Health Professionals and Community Members

The staff at North Shore Child & Family Guidance Center is composed of highly-trained psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, alcoholism and substance abuse counselors, mental health counselors, vocational rehabilitation counselors and family advocates, all with expertise and experience in working with children and families.

At the Guidance Center, we develop specialized treatment plans for children and their families. We employ a team approach to ensure that each child receives appropriate care and is monitored for risk and danger.

We welcome referrals from professionals – school personnel, pediatricians, child care specialists, social workers, therapists and others.

Additionally, we offer professional education and consultation on mental health issues to frontline professionals who serve children and families.

The Guidance Center offers a variety of community education, consultation and training programs on Long Island that can be presented throughout the community: at schools, libraries, local organizations, in the workplace and in individual homes. Speakers are available both for day and evening events. Honoraria/fees will vary depending on length, time and location.
