Announcing FREE four session Parent Group Series: Navigating the Rocky Road of Adolescence. This series, led by licensed psychologist Deborah Weinstock-Savoy, Ph.D., will explore the many changes that occur during adolescence, and how they affect relationships at home and school. Parents will discuss relevant topics such as promoting healthy choices, setting realistic limits and appropriate consequences; understanding when and how to negotiate; dealing with changes and crises (e.g., divorce); identifying risk factors for anxiety and depression; handling experimentation with sex, alcohol, drugs, and learning to “let go” while maintaining family connections.
