Brave Parenting

Attention parents! We are pleased to announce a new parenting course for parents of explosive, inflexible, or hyperactive children and adolescents.
Being a challenge to parent, these children can leave you frustrated by the lack of change in the face of traditional parenting styles, often taking their toll on the family system as a whole.
The objective of this course is to equip parents with the necessary skills to promote change within their children when their children lack the skills to respond to traditional parenting techniques.
This course can act as a starting point for overwhelmed parents, or as an adjunctive course to help parents reinforce the important work being done in their child’s individual therapy or skills training.
For our children and adolescents, learning new skills in therapy is as important as the parents’ ability to model and reinforce those skills in the home!

 

Course Curriculum addresses the following areas:

  • Increasing flexibility and decreasing meltdowns

  • Prioritizing goals

  • Collaborative problem solving with your child

  • Emotion regulation skills

  • Clear and effective parental communication

     


The Brave Parenting course begins February 13, 2018. Online registration is currently open. Click here to register online. We also provide individual family sessions, child/adolescent skills training sessions, and parent coaching.
