Children in the Middle
“Children in the Middle” is a skills-based program that helps children and parents deal with the children’s reaction to divorce. It is a recognized Model Program by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Results reported include: 57% reduction in litigation (e.g., child-access, change in custody, and/or child-support disputes), 30% to 53% reduction in parental conflict, 70% fewer school absences, 54% fewer physician visits by children, and 22% reduction in child-reported stress.
This workshop teaches practical strategies to effectively parent children from toddlers to teens. Parents will learn how to utilize natural consequences, creativity and humor to establish control without resorting to anger, threats, nagging, or exhausting power struggles. In addition, parents will learn strategies for setting effective limits, how praise and play can be used to improve parent-child relationships, effective discipline techniques and how to set healthy boundaries.
You and Your Aging Parent
This workshop is specifically designed for individuals and families who are dealing with an aging parent. Participants will learn what services are available for seniors and how they can access them, how to recognize depression, signs it is time to step in to provide help, and how to help your parent accept assistance.
Our speakers would be happy to work with you to develop a custom presentation based on a topic of particular interest to you. Sample topics include mental health issues in children and adults, reactive attachment disorder, stress management, maternal depression, marriage enrichment, adapting to change, such as divorce, grief, loss of job, and strategies to remain independent with age.
