New Group! Parents/Guardians of Teen and/or Preteen Boys
We will be starting a group soon! This is a parenting group for parents/guardians of teenage and/or preteen boys.
It would be a combination of a support group, discussion, and psychoeducation. The therapist would be supplying articles or videos for participants to watch prior to the group to then discuss during the group session.
Theme: Parenting teenage boys in a pandemic. Our teenage boys are seeing an increase in anxiety and depression, which is also resulting in maladaptive coping strategies and that challenges parents on how best to support them with their particular needs.
Group Size: 10-12 participants. This will be a closed group.
*Prior to the start date of the group, all individuals will be screened for appropriateness to enter the group.
Dates and Times:
To be determined
Contact our office number (505-557-4656) for more information.
