4. Anger Management Seminars for adolescents, adults, and families©
Many families have never learned the appropriate expression and uses of anger. Dr. Rand provides the tools for families to
understand their personal and collective strengths and weaknesses relative to anger management and conflict resolution. This
information puts each person in better position for making informed decisions about their own behavior.
5. Workshop: "The Psychology of Money for Couples: Does Money Cause Conflict With Your
Many couples sabotage their marital success during fights about money. The taboo in America against talking about money;
family myths, rules, and secrets; different communication styles; and distinct money personalities often get in the way
of cooperating and finding solutions. When a couple fails to realize the impact of these hidden factors on their marriage,
they tend to rely on ineffective strategies that can be detrimental to their financial, emotional, and relational health.
Dr. Rand teaches seminars to address these issues. She examines normal milestones in family development as they intersect
with unforeseen events that alter family life. Her seminars help couples recognize potential sources of their financial conflicts
and identify relevant and practical financial solutions.
6. "Safer Driving for Teens: A Workshop for Teens and Their Caring Parents"©
Dr. Rand offers ongoing courses for families with new drivers to address the emotional aspects of the enormous responsibility
of driving a vehicle. These classes will help parents communicate with their teenagers their often unspoken but real concerns
about the hazards of driving in a way that teens can hear, understand, and utilize. Driving courses teach the mechanics of the
car, the skills of driving, and the rules of the road. Dr. Rand addresses another, more important dimension -- the emotionality of
adolescence and how to deal with it while driving. Teens develop internal motivation to act responsibly by talking with caring adults.
Communication is often a challenge for teenagers and their parents. Don't let the generation gap get in the way of having this
important discussion. Let us provide a structured format for you and the teen you love.
Dr. Rand is available to present these workshops to your extended family, group, family-owned business, or
organization. Please contact her at 480.466.7010 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more
information or to schedule an engagement.

3. "Survivors Speak Out!"
Many people in the community would like to help end domestic violence in our lifetime. Yet many people do not know or
understand what actions constitute domestic violence or how to identify when one's own behavior is a problem of violence.
Dr. Rand offers nearly-free town hall meetings for victims, survivors, unidentified perpetrators and their loved ones to learn
in an anonymous way, more about violence against women and steps to deter such violence. Local restaurants host the
meetings; attendees are simply asked to make a purchase of $1.00 or more at the hosting restaurant as they listen to the
information presented. Please bring family and friends to educate yourself about this serious social problem and discover
ways you can help NOW to end it.

8. “Love Is Not Abuse” (Liz Claiborne Foundation)
'Could violence be a part of your teen's social life or dating relationships? The answer may surprise you. While we might
think that relationship violence is something that could never affect the lives of our children, the truth is that nearly a third
of girls surveyed said they know at least one student at school who has been physically abused by a person they were
dating. The good news is that there is a lot we, as parents, can do to step in and help. All it takes is a little time, focus, and
a commitment to reach out, listen and talk to our teens. No one is better positioned to make a difference in the lives of
young people than parents. Your concerns about your child staying clear of abuse, being respectful of others and finding
healthy relationships need to be discussed. Your values are the ones that matter most. Although it may be uncomfortable
for you, adults must understand and accept the realities of teen relationships and sexuality in order to make a real impact
on the issue of teen dating violence. Don't let your discomfort with the topic blind you to possible warning signs of
relationship abuse or stop you from reaching out and communicating with your child. This workshop can help parents talk
with their teenage sons and daughters about the violence that can occur within a relationship and the confusion and pain
it causes. It can lead to a conversation about what is happening in your teen's relationships and how you can help."
