"Cool, Calm, and Connected" group for parents and kids

This is an eight-week emotional regulation group designed for children and parents to learn more about supporting children when they become dysregulated. This psychoeducational program involves two groups: one for children and one for parents. Here's how the CCC group works: 

Kids meet with Claire Penn in one room, working on emotional regulation skills and incorporating lots of psychoeducation on the brain, zones of arousal, sensory soothing, etc..  At the same time, parents meet with Andrew Phillips in another room, where they receive parenting support and discuss the same content that their kids are working on, so that they're better able to help kids practice and integrate those skills into their lives outside of CFC.  Families leave the group with a new, shared vocabulary around emotional expression and connection.


Our next group starts in January 2017, with one night of the week dedicated to kids ages 6 to 7, and one group for kids ages 8 to 9. Click here to download the flyer.
