This parents-only group will present methods to manage the behaviors of teens and young adult children more consistently and effectively. Participants will learn to increase cooperation between parents and children, use behavioral change strategies, and develop understanding and compassion for your child—and for yourself.

Love & Limits: Empowering Parents, Part Two
Friday, July 9, 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.
$50 per attendee
This advanced class will help parents of teens and young adult children 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. Please take The Roadmap before taking this class.

GET IN THE ZONE: SKILLS FOR REGULATING EMOTIONS AT HOME
 

Lifework's new group, Get in the Zone: Skills for Regulating Emotions at Home, helps pre-teens (ages 9 to 13) and teens (ages 14 to 18) learn about their emotions and cope with recent changes to their lives. This class combines the concepts of "zones of regulation" with coping strategies from Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).
 
The zones of regulation are used widely in many school settings. One goal of these classes is to create and promote a common language about emotions between the school and home settings, creating more collaboration from the two environments. Teens and their parents will learn skills to help with decreasing their anxiety, reducing impulsive behaviors, finding connection, regulating high emotions, and coping through this difficult time.

 

The one-hour class will be meeting online for six weeks.
 

Get in the Zone for Pre-Teens
Thursdays from 6:45 to 7:45 p.m.
Held weekly from May 20 to June 24, 2021 on Zoom

 

Get in the Zone for Teens
Thursdays from 6:45 to 7:45 p.m.
Next class TBD


This class is open to any pre-teens or teens and one parent/guardian who would like to learn additional strategies to cope with high emotions at home.
