This 10-session program is for parents of children (ages preschool through middle school) with challenging behaviors.

The interactive format is designed to help parents identify the source of their child’s behavior and learn what they can do about it. Group leader for this program will be Christy Donley, LCPC, RPT. At each session, Christy will provide proactive strategies for raising children with difficult temperaments and developmental differences. Parents will learn to customize their approach to fit their child’s unique profile. Based on Dr. Dan Shapiro’s Parent Child Journey.
