2022 Empowering Parents Workshops

LifeWork's Empowering Parents Workshop Series applies the principles of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to the most challenging aspects of parenting teens and young adult children. These workshops are open to any parents or caregivers whose teenage or young adult children are currently enrolled in a DBT program.

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 One: Feb. 4, May 6, Aug. 5, Nov. 4

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.

Empowering Parents, Part Two: Feb. 11, May 13, Aug. 12, Nov. 11

Each workshop is three hours from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. and are held on Friday evenings. The cost is $100 for both workshops for each attendee.
