Keeping Your Brain Sharp with Sheryl Kaplan

Every day brings exciting new findings in brain research. We now know that the brain is “plastic” and that we all have the capacity to re-wire brain circuits and to grow new neurons throughout the lifespan. Today Sheryl will speak about ways you can take care of your brain (have a brain-healthy lifestyle) and some simple strategies to improve our ability to learn and remember new things.


Sheryl Kaplan is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a Credentialed Prevention Professional with over 30 years of experience providing individual, family and group counseling for children, adolescents and adults. Ms. Kaplan was a school social worker employed by Capital Region BOCES for more than 26 years. During that time, she worked as a Student Assistance Counselor and Prevention Program Provider in elementary, middle and high schools across the Capital District. Ms. Kaplan is now a full time trainer and consultant who specializes in the application of brain-based research for social work and related professions.
