ON GOING GROUPS AND GROUPS GETTING READY TO BEGIN SOON:
PARENT SUPPORT GROUP:
Anyone who is a parent knows we all could use a little extra support. This is a weekly group for 8-weeks for those seeking education, support and social connection with other parents. Have you been searching for a space to think about and process parenting? Then this guided structure group may be for you. Group members will learn skills that they can use to address common parenting challenges and relieve feelings of anxiety and concern often experienced but not always openly talked among most parents. Effective and realistic parenting strategies will be reviewed, including positive reinforcement, effective communication, behavioral management and mindful parenting. These open conversations will increase group members’ sense of support and social connection with other parents while gaining new skills.
Topics covered will include but are not limited to:
· The power of praise (positive reinforcement)
· Methods of creating clear and effective routines/expectations
· Mindful and compassionate communication (active listening)
· Active ignoring and managing challenging behaviors
· Importance of self-care

STRESS-MANAGEMENT / WELLNESS GROUP:
This is a group that aims to move at a pace of the needs of our group members and focus on aspects of how stresses are expressed through unhelpful behaviors or thoughts. We cover a range of struggles from anxiety and depression to the more specific symptoms of avoidance and isolation, unspoken expectations that turn to resentment, and finding the skills to thrive in difficult times instead of just survive. This group is open to anyone wanting help in these areas and more.
