This is a fundraiser and lecture given by Professor Susie Synder LCSW (of the School of Social Work) for the Al Forthan Memorial Recovery Scholarship.

Learning Objectives: to gain increased knowledge of Narrative Theory; become familiar with an integrated strength based approach to working with children and families. Enhance your ability to build collaborative alliances with children and families; become familiar with the use of drawings, visuals, play, and letter writing; observe and practice specific narrative and collaborative techniques and strategies; and develop specific intervention skills for dealing with serious and entrenched problems in an upbeat, playful, and hopeful manner.

The purpose of the scholarship is to honor Al, encourage students to explore how addiction has impacted our community, and to think about solutions to this complex problem. 11 scholarships will be awarded in 2011 in varying amounts to each of the 10 Portland Public High Schools. The final scholarship will be awarded to an Oregon High School student from an addicted family. The amount for that scholarship is $4,000.

The cost of attending this event is $50 (drinks and snacks included).
