What Is Empowering Parents?

Empowering Parents helps parents manage the challenges of parenting young people (age 11 to young adults) with intense emotions. Some difficulties that parents may face include fears about your young person's future, tension with your partner, frustration about treatment "not working" and difficulties with enjoying life. 

Empowering Parents will help parents learn strategies for effective parenting and feel supported by other parents.
