Craig R Brown's Groups

How Not To Raise a Narcissistic Child

We all struggle with trying to raise courageous and independent children. Unfortunately poor parental role modeling, the media, and educational system have combined to produce children who lack the capacity for empathy, bravery, and kindness. This psychoeducational group will teach parenting skills that will help a child develop resilience and a strong character. This is a psychoeducational group and insurance is not accepted. The group will be starting this Fall. An initial consultation is required. Please call for more information.
