Forum offers tips on raising teens

A family therapist will be offering a forum about how to relate to teenagers at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Town Hall auditorium, 730 Massachusetts Ave. Karren Garrity will present an overview of her book, “The Tool Box: Tricks of the Trade for Raising Teenagers,” and will answer questions from the audience. The forum is intended for anyone who lives with or works with an adolescent age 11 to 20, and will address topics such as communication, conflict resolution, compromise, trust, and self-esteem. Sponsored by the town’s Youth Health and Safety Coalition, the event is free, but space is limited; RSVP to Karen Dillon at ayhsc@town.arlington.ma.us.
