A strong parent-child relationship is the foundation for building resilience during a time of transition and risk. Parents experience a judgment free zone where they experience support and develop skills to make the experience of parenting a child or adolescent more harmonious and enjoyable.
Our parent workshops address the parent-child relationship at various developmental stages. Parents learn tools to connect with their child and to provide the secure base needed for healthy exploration and optimal development.
