Parent Group Topic: Who’s Angry?-Triggers are real and emotions can lead to anger. Parents will identify and discuss their own triggers and how they relate to their child(ren)’s behaviors, and how they can change their responses to have healthier and more meaningful interactions.
Youth Group (ages 11-18) Topic: But First, Let me Take a Selfie (Boosting Self-Esteem)-Youth will engage in learning different ways they can boost their self-esteem by practicing self-recognition. Youth will engage in activities using positive affirmations and strengths, things that make you feel good, and a yummy treat.
The Parent Group, Youth Group (ages 11-18) and child activities (ages 2-10) take place concurrently. A potluck meal is served and participating families are asked to consider bringing a side dish to share. Childcare is provided free of charge. Certificates of Attendance are also available.
