While at first it may seem uncomfortable for families to discuss their situation with other people, it is often a relief to meet - and receive moral support – from those who are experiencing similar problems. Examples of ongoing treatment groups include:
- Parent-Child Relationship - for parents who are interested in strengthening their family relationships
- Parents Empowering Preschoolers – for families with young children (ages 3-5) who have experienced chronic problems at multiple daycare centers or preschools
- Social Skills Groups - for children with emotional difficulties to learn appropriate self-regulation and social skills
- Managing Parenting and Depression – for mothers experiencing depression and who are concerned about the impact this will have on their relationship with their child
Many of our treatment groups for adults offer concurrent groups for their children that focus on building social skills and developing healthy peer relationships.
"I wish I’d have been in a group like this 16 years ago when I had my first son. If I’d understood then all that this group has taught me in this last year, I think my family could have avoided a lot of problems."
