Sign up for Empowering Parents Workshops

LifeWork’s two-part workshop series applies the principles of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to the most challenging aspects of parenting teens and young adult children.

Empowering Parents, Part One

This parents-only group presents the major concepts in DBT and their application to parenting. Attendees will learn and discuss methods to manage the behaviors of teens and young adult children more consistently and effectively. They will also learn to increase cooperation, utilize behavioral change strategies, and develop understanding and compassion for their children—and for themselves.

Empowering Parents, Part Two
This advanced class will help parents of teens and young adult children increase cooperation and improve their relationships. Participants will learn to manage their own levels of emotion during difficult interactions, set effective limits with their children, and “know what to say” when emotions run high.

Each workshop is three hours, and the cost is $100 for both workshops for each attendee.

Here are the 2022 dates for the workshops:

Empowering Parents, Part One: Feb. 4, May 6, Aug. 5, Nov. 4
Empowering Parents, Part Two: Feb. 11, May 13, Aug. 12, Nov. 11
