dbt parenting group
Learn to skillfully manage your teen’s strong emotions and behaviors
Parenting Group Series Enrolling Now!
We work with teens every single day at the teen support center and we hear a LOT about what teens experience and need to feel supported. But... teens don't heal in a vacuum. They are a part of a FAMILY system in which they rely on parents a whole lot too. << This is the very reason that YOU need support and skills too so that you can best support the changes your teen is making in therapy.
We've have had LOTS of requests for a parenting group so that you can learn the tools to help your teen make lasting changes at home. And, since you give so much as a parent, we want to give back to YOU!
