Group Description: Help children feel safe, loved, and accepting of your guidance.  Emotionally nourish yourself and your family. Compassionately understand the “buttons” that trigger reactivity or “shutdown”.  Become “unstuck” from this dynamic through innovative strategies, psychodramatic action techniques, somatic grounding, and emotional support.  Learn to set needed limits and boundaries while building attachment.  Learn how to use your nervous system to help you and your child self-regulate and become more deeply connected.  Become the more positively responsive and calm parent you want to be.
