Event Description

This 4 hour (2 sessions) Acceptance and Commitment Therapy based program has been developed based on stress management interventions and aims to support parents with children with disabilities. Parents face a number of stressors when caring for a child with special needs, such as mental health disorders, ADHD, ASD, or LD. Learning to manage day-to-day stress can be beneficial for the parent-child relationship. Participants will learn how to approach self-doubt, struggles, worries and stress from a new perspective and with better coping strategies. These skills include listening with full attention, cultivating emotional awareness, practicing self-regulation, and bringing compassion and non-judgmental acceptance to interactions with their child. Parents will be introduced to mindfulness skills, value-driven actions, group discussions, experiential exercises and homework assignments.

Most insurance plans cover the cost of this program under psychological services.
