"A Closer Look" Newsletter

Jewish-parenting.org is fortunate to have Debbie Brown as the co-author of "A Closer Look," our monthly newsletter, that explores some of today’s parenting challenges.

Debbie has been parenting a struggling adolescent for over four years. She brings the invaluable perspective of a parent who has successfully applied the tools and skills taught to her by her therapist, teacher and spiritual mentor, Rabbi Shimon Russell, LCSW. She has learned that coping with a struggling teen is an opportunity for one’s self-development and her approach is one of compassion, hope, and personal growth.

Debbie has brought and continues to bring her message to many parents through newspaper and magazine articles as well as inspirational speaking engagements. She devotes her time to helping parents through phone communication and is a frequent contributor to the MASK email support line dedicated to struggling parents. In line with her training and experience, Debbie has begun a service of parent coaching in order to help parents who are having difficulty in grasping the tools necessary to cope with their daily challenges.

Debbie is currently pursuing a professional career in psychotherapy.
