Do you have a child aged 11 to 16 who experiences frequent or ongoing anxiety? This six-week group offers tools and strategies for parents as they support their children through anxiety.
The program’s approach is informed by the treatment model, Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotions (SPACE), and aims to strengthen strategies and community around parenting anxious children.
SPACE is a parent-based model for addressing youth anxiety developed by Dr. Eli Lebowitz at the Yale Child Study Center. The model follows a structured path to increase parental support and to decrease parental accommodations for the child’s anxiety.
In this six-week group, we will introduce the central concepts of SPACE to parents, including what we mean by “accommodations for anxiety,” and how to creatively implement personal boundaries, share reassuring statement, and recruiting and engaging supportive people. The goal is to build connections between parents of anxious children, share tools and resources for navigating the impact of anxiety on families, and support your children’s resiliency.
The group will be guided by Rebecca Coates-Finke (she/her), LMHCA, P-RDT, Teen and Young Adult Mental Health Counselor.
Wednesdays from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m.
Junio 7, 14, 21, 28 & Julio 5 & 12
