Fall 2019 – Parent Child Journey – Raising Your Challenging Child

September 18, 2019 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Parent Child Journeu

Dr. Dan Shapiro’s Parent Child Journey – An Individualized Approach for Raising Your Challenging Child is a 10-session program for parents of children (ages preschool through early adolescence) with difficult behaviors. It is designed to help parents identify the sources of their children’s challenges and learn what they can do about them. During each session, we will discuss proactive strategies for raising children with difficult temperaments and developmental differences. The emphasis is on customizing the strategy to fit each child’s unique profile while taking parents’ profiles into account as well. Different children, different parents, different approaches.


This section will be led by Dr. Sarah Wayland, Ph.D. and starts Wednesday, September 18th, 2019.
