What are The Parent Workshops like?

At Teen Therapy Center we KNOW it's tough being a parent, especially if you have a teenager! The Parent Workshop is all about creating a safe, non-judgemental place where parents can come together and feel heard, relate with one another, share their thoughts and finally get those tough parenting questions answered... You know what I'm talking about - that relentless worrying that keeps you up at night!  

This special version of The Parent Workshop will provide that safe environment for parents concerned about issues related to sexual abuse and misconduct. Anybody is welcome but this group is specifically designed for parents who are hoping to share with others in similar situations and learn how to better empower their daughters and sons as well as being able to openly talk about sexual abuse.

A few of the many questions we hear from parents about sexual misconduct are:

  • With all of this talk about sexual abuse and seeing how common it seems to be, I'm terrified that my daughter might be affected at some point.  How do I talk to her about this sensitive topic?

  • A lot of people still seem to think that sexual abuse can only happen to girls, but my son was a victim when he was younger and it's deeply impacted him.  I have tried to help and talk to him about it, but he keeps saying "I'm fine" when I know deep down he's hurting.  What can I do to help him?

  • How do I teach my son to respect women?  Women are often objectified in the media and I always hear his friends talk about girls in such a crude manner.  I'm afraid this may be warping his view of women.  What do I do?

  • How can I help my daughter grow into a confident woman who can clearly communicate or withdraw consent in romantic situations?  I want her to feel that she is able to stand up for herself when she is uncomfortable according to her own sense of integrity.

The format is an open discussion. When you bring your questions, you'll leave with practical solutions that you can implement right away. The goal is for you to gain effective strategies to address your concerns, either the new ones cropping up or those unresolvable ones that keep you up at night. We will help you to design an approach to parenting that resonates with you so that you can learn to be the best parent that you want to be.

The Parent Workshop is both fun and informative. Learn more about:

  • Better communication strategies
  • How to keep your cool when your kid doesn't
  • How to prepare yourself for the challenges that still await you
  • Finding your strengths as a parent so you can confidently guide your child through life's ups and downs
