Old Dominion University will host a workshop with B. Bryan Post, founder of the Post Institute for Family-Centered Therapy, titled "Children and Fear: Exploring Myths About Traditional Parenting and Discipline from a Brain-based, Humanistic Perspective," from 7:15-9:15 p.m. Monday, Feb. 27, in 224 Kaufman Hall. It is free and open to the public.

Sponsors of the workshop are the ODU sociology and criminal justice department, In Support of Children and the National Association of Blacks in Criminal Justice.

Post, an internationally recognized specialist in the treatment of trauma in children and families, has lectured and consulted on the issues of adoption, attachment and bonding throughout the United States and abroad. He is the author of "For All Things a Season" and co-author of "The Forever Child."

Adopted as a child, Post has made it his primary work to speak to parents and professionals from a perspective of true-life examples based on his own life and the patients he has treated. He has developed the Stress Model Theory and Family-Centered Regulatory Therapy to aid families in need who have experienced dramatic change.

Parking for the workshop is available in the 43rd Street parking garage. For more information call 683-3800.
