Parent Groups: We have ongoing parent groups using material from TBRI and CPRT methodologies. Both TBRI and CPRT are empirically sound, with research pointing to participants reporting increased connection and healthy control.
Building Connection: Growing a Strong Child-Parent Relationship: This is an 8-week group for parents of children and teenagers. The purpose is to build attachment/connection with your child/teen while learning how to discipline effectively without being punitive. This group has been highly successful in the past, with participants sharing an increased connection as well as increased confidence and knowledge in skills to use when in difficult situations. They also have shared how they did not feel so isolated in their difficulties with their children and felt relief in being able to share with others in a safe setting. You will learn the skills a play therapist utilizes in session and have the opportunity to become more attuned to those you love and care for. These groups will be 8 weeks in length. I believe this method of parenting plus the interaction with other parents facing what you experience will spur your personal growth and self-confidence along. It will help with the strong feelings of guilt some parents face – you will learn to be gentle on yourself as you move forward. Groups are held twice a year, beginning in January and September. Contact KCA for more details and cost.

The purpose to help reduce negative long- and short-term effects of their concerns through building connection with others, reducing a sense of isolation, creating opportunities for added insight and awareness, and developing a healthier sense of self.
