Parent Skills and Support Workshop
Our 8-week workshop is geared towards parents of children approximately aged 14-20 who struggle with emotional dysregulation. Using a DBT framework, parents will learn how to balance emotional attunement/validation AND behavioral modification techniques and boundaries in order to foster connection and helpful support for their kids rather than reinforcing unhealthy patterns. This workshop will also cover some basic skills for parents to process their own emotions (fear, anger, guilt, obligations etc) so they do not interfere with effective parenting decisions. In addition to getting tools from this 8-week curriculum, parents will also benefit from the support and validation being surrounded by others in similar situations.
