Parent Workshop – Parenting in Times of Crisis

Presented by Dr. Nouri Ghahary – Time: 9 am (EDT)

We are inviting all parents to attend! This virtual class is part of our new Telemental Health services.

Focus: This group will help parents learn self-care, self-monitoring and other skills needed for effective parenting; it will complement the behavior meetings designed to help parents understand and shape their child’s behavior. This group will be held to provide a venue for parents to gain support from one another. This venue will also enable the sharing of resources as well as a strong emphasis on parent self-care.
The participants will learn:
  • Assertiveness and communication skills to improve relationships and set appropriate limits
  • Short-term strategies designed to help cope during moments of overwhelming distress
  • How to increase positive emotions and decrease negative ones for effective problem-solving
