Event description

Description

The teenage years bring so many changes for kids’ bodies, brains, and relationships. Maintaining influence and connection with your teen is an important part of family survival—and even thriving—during this time of growth and growing pains.

Exploring their identity and trying to fit together past experience with new expectations is a huge task for kids. This group is intended to support, inform, and listen to you in the journey of Parenting Adopted Teens.

Join us for a 4-part parent workshop and peer support group:

  • Recognize identity development as a healthy and dynamic process

  • Reveal how stress + grief shape relationships + risk-taking

  • Master new tools to help kids explore their own feelings and questions

  • Shine a light where attachment, trauma, and brain development overlap

  • Build alliance with your teen and poise as a parent (even when you're freaking out on the inside!)

  • Feel the LOVE from other families with similar stories and concerns

FAQs

What's the refund policy?

14 days prior to start of the workshop, refunds ok, less $50 processing fee. Less than 14 days, CREDIT ONLY for a future class/workshop/group with same instructor.

Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?

Tickets are $160 per person. Do you know someone who would like to attend in your place? Please have them contact me to see if the group is a good fit. I'm happy to transfer tuition to another fabulous family who would get a lot out of it! Let's talk : )

Do I have to attend the whole series?

This group is designed to build each week's topic on the previous one and create a safe, comfortable environment. Please plan to attend all 4 sessions in order to get the most out of the group, in terms of info and support, as well as sharing your perspective with others in the group. We're making a commitment to one another to be together for the whole series. The group becomes our safety net: In addition to expanding your parenting skills, increasing connection, and finding your voice, the group can be especially powerful in building new coping strategies, reality-checking worries that come up, and keeping family transitions in perspective.

What if my partner wants to come?

We have room just a couple more parents in this series; we'll cap it at 6. If you or your partner really want to get this info, but the Summer Series doesn't work for your family, Contact Me about getting on the waitlist for Fall 2018. We'd love to have you join us!
