Raise your child with courage, compassion and character! Bring out the best in yourself and your child! The workshop is designed to support and enhance your personal growth as a parent through training in techniques for addressing common concerns during childhood and adolescent development. Using proven techniques pioneered by renowned doctor Alfred Adler, Mrs. Thorn has successfully shown parents how to encourage their children and give them the confidence to succeed. You will learn: the four reasons why children misbehave; practical strategies to inspire cooperation, build morale and encourage teamwork among family members; to manage anger and resolve conflict.

More about this group

Women in Transition

Many women who struggle with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, and other of life's stressful transitions benefit from support and feedback from other women. We find that we are more alike than different. In order to make significant life changes, women choose the group...it's like having therapy with surround sound! The changes resonate around the room, and come back to the individual with hope, encouragment and support. The group is for women who have been in individual therapy for a while and know what their issues are. They come because they are seeking profound and long lasting changes.
