Hand Pile of Happy Group

Parent Management Training Group - Starts September 16th!

We've all been there.  At our wits end.  Struggling with this whole parenting thing. Parenting is hard work! There are no perfect parents and we are all doing the best we can in the moment that we are in.  Sometimes it's overwhelming, exhausting, and discouraging.  Sometimes we feel alone as our child(ren) push us to our limits.  You my friend our not alone.  Come join us as we learn to stop the power struggles, manage the conflict, and feel a more positive connection to our child(ren).  We all learn best when we feel supported!

Parent Management Training is a skills training group designed for parents of children who are struggling with oppositional and defiant behaviors, impulse control issues, poor social skills, and emotional instability.

The group meets weekly for 90 minutes and is usually 10-12 session long.

Below are some of the topics addressed:

• Strengths & Goals 

• Encouraging Cooperation

• Encouraging Positive Behavior

• Recognizing Emotions

• Regulating Emotions

• Setting Limits & Discipline

• Balancing Encouragement & Discipline • Negotiating Compromise

• Communicating with Children

• Promoting School Success

• Problem Solving & Family Meetings

• Monitoring Your Child's Activities

30 years of research demonstrates that Parent Management Training has been shown to decrease children's noncompliance, depression,

deviant peer association, and internalizing behavior such as lying and

deception. It has been shown to increase a child's academic performance and social skills. Parents report a more positive and peaceful relationship with their child, increased confidence in their

parenting abilities, and improved marital relationships.
