If you are a parent struggling with your teenager, you are NOT ALONE! In my 15 years of working with adolescents and their parents, I have developed a deep sense of compassion and respect for both teens and their parents. It is a challenging time for both, and without the proper tools, it can become unmanageable. Dr. Alan Fruzzetti has developed a skills training module specifically designed to give parents of teenagers skills to address behaviors, improve communication, and foster a healthy and satisfying relationship with their child(ren).
Skills training is a 14 week course and focuses on the following skills:
-validation skills to improve communication
-relational mindfulness to increase intentional interactions and improve the relationship
-behavior modification to promote behavior change
In addition, Dr. Orris provides extensive consultation to parents within the group setting as well as between session phone coaching.
