Family Focused Workshop

Hold Me Tight, Let Me Go: An Evidence-based Workshop for Parents with Tweens and Teens.

        Registration (available below) is now open for our January 2018 Workshop. 
Our Family Focused Therapeutic Workshop, Hold Me Tight, Let Me Go, is a 2 day (Friday evening, and Saturday) experience-based workshop for parents and their tweens or teens.  The workshop will focus on improving the bond between parents and adolescents; develop effective, respectful communication; engaging youth in being a productive member of the family; helping parents determine, set and reinforce boundaries; and healing past emotional injuries. The program is both educational and therapeutic, designed to strengthen the bonds between teens and their parents. With the help of highly trained therapists, exercises, structured parent/teen conversations, and group support, families will grow their appreciation of how to rely on each other through this incredibly important life transition from adolescence into adulthood.

The program will be led by Rebecca Esser, MA, LPC and Dr. Jessica Norman, LCPC. Due to the intensity of the program, registration is capped at ten families. Participation is open to single parents, co-parents, married / cohabiting couples, and caregivers, with one or more children whose ages are between 12 and 17 years old.
