Using Popular Culture in work with Children & Teens:

An Epic Workshop!

Cyndi Starzyk‐Frey, M.Ed, R.S.W.


Friday May 29, 2015
YWCA of Calgary Sheriff King Home


This dynamic, creative and humorous one day workshop will introduce the audience to the wonderful world of Pop Culture and inventive ways to use it in your work with children and teens. Cyndi Starzyk‐Frey is a Lethbridge Child and Family Therapist with specialized training in Play Therapy. She has always been fascinated with popular culture. A self‐described pop culture fanatic, she uses her knowledge of the latest music, celebrities, TV shows, movies, books, dance, and magazines in her day to day practice with young children and teens. This workshop will provide you with some specific techniques you will be able to take with you that can help you to engage with your clients, and integrate into supporting them with issues in their lives. Learn how pop culture can even have a positive influence rather than the negative portrayal it too often receives.

Using Popular Culture in work with Children & Teens: An Epic Workshop! is intended for therapists, Youth Workers, Social Workers, Psychologists, Nurses, teachers, teaching assistants and absolutely anyone who works with children and teens. This workshop has been rated G for all audiences.

Cyndi Starzyk‐Frey is a Child and Family Therapist in private practice in Lethbridge, Alberta where she specializes in trauma work. Part of her practice also focuses on Collaborative Divorce work where she serves the community as a Child Specialist. A long‐standing member of the Alberta Play Therapy Association, she is currently on the Board. Cyndi is also actively involved in Rotary, serving as Director – Service Projects and Youth. She teaches part‐time at Lethbridge College in Psychology/Sociology, enjoying her work with that age group as well. In her spare time she enjoys being a mother and wife, reading, writing one‐act plays, acting, and travel – most recently returning from Budapest and Prague where she was able to immerse herself into some European pop‐culture!
