Sarah MacKay Parent Coaching: Support Group - Parents Transitioning Teens Home, 7/11
Do you have a teen returning from wilderness or residential treatment this summer or early fall? Or one who has recently returned home?
Are you feeling both excited and anxious? Needing practical support?
We are offering an ONLINE Transition Support Group for PARENTS, using Zoom. You will "meet" with other parents and two certified parent coaches who have been through the transition process themselves. We'll discuss day-to-day challenges and how to stay connected with your teen while setting and holding limits. Other topics will include:
- Maximizing your own opportunities for growth / improving family dynamics
- Creating structures to support consistency and follow through
- Leading with curiosity rather than fear and anger
- How to handle relapses
Support Group Details:
WHEN:: Thursday evenings from 6:30 - 8:30pm —“meet” every other week
STARTS: Ongoing, every two weeks - next meeting is July 11
WHERE: Zoom, your computer
