Perspective for Parents Podcast by Nicholas D. Thompson LCSW
"I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, having earned a Bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Colorado at Boulder and a Master’s degree in Social Work from the University of North Dakota. I have been working with youth and their families for over 10 years in a variety of settings including middle and high schools, private practice, residential treatment facilities, and detention centers. In addition, I have worked abroad with youth in Brazil and Costa Rica. I have a private practice in Boulder, Colorado, give trainings and presentations to students, staff of school districts, and parents, and host a podcast for parents of adolescents called “Perspective for Parents.” My past professional experience includes working for the St. Vrain Valley School District as a Mental Health Interventionist, and serving as lead parent facilitator for iTHRIVE, an early substance abuse intervention program for teens and their parents. I am passionate about assisting youth and their families realizing adolescence is a time of great opportunity and not just a phase to survive."
