I will encourage you to evaluate your parenting skills, strengths and the role you play in your child life. Through group sharing your will discover your values, beliefs and altitudes that you have toward parenting. Just by knowing your attitudes and feelings about parenting, this can be a empowering tool of awareness. Remember, your parenting experiences are invaluable and

Suicide Talk

“Suicide TALK is a 1.5 to 2 hour exploration in suicide awareness. It is organized around the question, "Should we talk about suicide?" It provides a structure in which session members can safely explore some of the most challenging attitudinal issues about suicide, and encourages every member to
find a part that they can play in preventing suicide”. (LivingWorks)
