Workshop Sessions Include:
“Developing a Nurturing and Connected Home”
Presented by: Luke Wilkerson, M.A. MFT Intern
Do you find yourself stuck repeating the same conflicts over and over again with your kids? This workshop provides an outline to help you identify the triggers that keep those cycles repeating, and offers insight into how to break the unhealthy patterns and develop nurturing and connected ones.
Presented by: Jamie Holden, M.A., MFT Intern
Boundaries are an essential building block in growing healthy families. Not only do they provide a safe place for children and teens to practice life skills such as compromise, working as a team, and self-control; but fostering boundaries also teaches children to become more aware of the needs of others. This workshop encourages parents to reflect on the current boundaries established in the home, and offers direction towards implementing new boundaries in effective ways.
“Success and Failure”
Presented by: Alex Helenius, M.A., MFT Intern
Life hands us all kinds of highs and lows. Learn more about how to support your child when they encounter both success and failure, and how to use these
moments to create belonging and deepen connections with one another.
“Anxiety and Depression”
Presented by: Candice Candelaria, M.M.F.T., Marriage & Family Therapist
Anxiety and depression disrupt many of our homes these days. They settle into our lives seemingly unannounced and set up residency without asking permission. While a degree of these feelings are something everyone experiences throughout life, there can come a time when they interfere with our relationships and responsibilities. This workshop is tailored to equip you and your family to spot risk factors for their occurrence, identify their presence, and deal with these undesired guests.
