DBT Skills For Parents

Event Series Event Series (See All)

February 26 @ 7:00 pm 8:30 pm PST

Do you have a child who experiences BIG emotions?

We are offering a 12-week class for parents of children who are “supersensors” – they experience the good and the painful emotions in a big way, and may take a long time to calm down. These supersensors are also often highly creative, incredibly intuitive, and care very much! Parenting a supersensor can sometimes require “superparents”!

Who is this class for?

  • Parents wanting to increase their connection with their child/children
  • People who want to gain understanding of behavioral principles and strategies to support the needs of a variety of circumstances and responses
  • Those who want to gain their own skills to effective respond instead of react

What will you learn?
How to identify and nurture your child’s specific emotional needs

Increase connection and positive interaction

Understand what gets in the way of your own responses and increase skillful actions

Learn how to effectively discuss issues and provide consequences and reinforcement

Build a “change-ready” environment to support more effective choices for your child
