Worthington Cares Speakers Series

Wednesday, November 14, 2018

Drug Safe Worthington, in partnership with Worthington Schools, will be offering a 5 month speaker series. The topics for the series will be centered on mental health, substance abuse, addiction, as well as the latest trends involving the schools and our community. On the evening of the event a light dinner will be provided by the local faith based community. In addition, free child care for youth ages 5-14 will be available in the gymnasium for each event.

Speaker, Carol Taylor: This presentation will provide a basic understanding of how brains develop and respond to stress. By understanding how the brain responds to stress and learns new skills, parents and teachers can help young people have stronger relationships and increase their self-control.

Carol Taylor is currently the Deputy Director of Coaching and Training at the Franklin County Family and Children First Council. As an educator and trainer, Carol works within the community to infuse information regarding trauma, toxic stress and resilience into all child-serving systems in the county. 

Originally from Central Ohio, Carol completed her undergraduate degree in Math Education and is currently enrolled in a Master’s degree program at the University of Findlay. Carol returned to Central Ohio in 2013 and joined the staff of FCFCFC with the goal of helping all people understand behavior and relationships differently, allowing children and adults to grow, learn and live in healthy environments.
