Couples Staying Connected Through Parenting Challenges
January 18, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pmFree
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Parenting a child with a psychiatric disorder can cause significant strain on a couple’s relationship and create a dynamic that is riddled with blame, mistrust and division. Children and adolescents managing drug or alcohol abuse, self-harm behaviors, impulsivity, defiance, depression and/or anxiety can suck the oxygen out of the home and the family, leaving couples with little energy for each other. Often times, instead of turning towards each other for support and sustenance, differing perspectives and beliefs cause a turning away which leaves partners feeling alone and exhausted. But this does not have to be every couple’s story. This seminar will provide couples with tangible tools and coping strategies that will help them re-align, re-connect, and re-energize their relationship regardless of their parenting challenges.
1.5 CEUs offered for LPC, LMFT, LCSW, and Clinical Psychologist.
REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED FOR ALL ATTENDEES PRIOR TO THE EVENT. Check in will begin 15 minutes prior to the program beginning. Due to video filming, late attendees will be asked to view the presentation in the Green Room.
