SPACE: A Parenting Group to Reduce Child Anxiety Began September 29th
It’s hard to watch our kids be worried and afraid, and it’s our first instinct to want to protect them. SPACE (Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotions) is an evidence-based program that helps parents know when and how best to encourage their kids to face their fears. In this small treatment group format, parents will learn these skills while sharing support from other parents facing similar challenges and questions. Both parents are encouraged to attend sessions, so as to learn techniques together and increase the effectiveness of the therapy. This is a parent-only group that will treat child anxiety.
Comic Books and Social Skills Began September 30th
Comics provide a natural entry point for building social skills—story lines invite discussion, and the material brings kids together. Dr. Sam Jeannite, himself a comic book nerd, will lead kids 8-11 years old through a social skills treatment group centered on comic books. Topics covered will include communication skills, friendship, emotions, coping strategies, and others. Sessions will be held in person.
