Parent Workshop Series

“Supporting Your Child’s Emotional Development: Techniques and Tools for Parents”

November 7th 6pm - 7:30pm @1510 W. Division

Aileen Kelleher (LCSW) will be introducing the basics of research-based techniques that can help improve children's behavior using empathy, encouragement and calm parenting. Based on the research of Alan Kazdin at Yale University, these basics are the foundation of the most effective behavioral change programs for children today. Discover new approaches to help your child manage their emotions in a safe and healthy way while also providing calm limits to help them learn and grow. This presentation is geared for parents with children ages 3-13 years old.
