Parenting Anxious Kids: SPACE Treatment online workshop
October 12, 2021 at 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm EDT
This 8 week online workshop follows the evidenced based research proven SPACE Treatment protocol which stands for Supportive Parenting of Anxious Childhood Emotions. SPACE is for parents and has been proven to be just as effective as CBT for individual clients. SPACE is perfect for parents of kids or teens who are treatment resistant or hesitant, as an adjunct to therapy, or as a stand alone treatment. This program has shown improvement in OCD symptoms, generalized anxiety, social anxiety, separation anxiety, and school refusal due to anxiety. The focus is on shifting parental behavior to shift the child/ teens ability to cope and handle their anxious emotions. Focusing on the only thing you can control- your own behavior, this 8 week course is proven effective by the Yale Child Study Center and the research completed by Dr. Eli Lebowitz and colleagues.
Optional supplementary workshops will be offered after the 8 week course focused on same page parenting, dealing with significant behavioral challenges, handling threats of self harm, and enlisting help from others.
This Workshop includes 10 hours of education over 8 sessions and meets online on the following dates; January 12, January 19, January 26, February 2, February 9, February 16, February 23, & March 2, 2022.
