This group, aimed at kids age 10-13, introduces various techniques for understanding and expressing emotions, social skills, and relaxation techniques. Kids learn to understand how their brain works and how to use the whole brain to improve their emotions and mental health. Art, mindfulness, brain integration, Tai Chi, and many other techniques come together to give kids a comprehensive mental health toolkit. The group meets for 6 consecutive Monday evenings, for 2 hours. The group is facilitated by several trained therapists at Still Waters Counseling. There is a concurrent parent group, focusing on the Nurtured Heart Approach, for those interested. Spots are limited, so register soon!

Nurtured Heart Parent Group: Still Waters Counseling.

  community member   < less

This group aims to guide parents through the Nurtured Heart Approach. This approach is intended to alter the parent-child relationship to emphasize strengths and successes and increase confidence and to teach alternate ways to address negative behaviors. The approach, while created to help transform difficult children and empower kids and parents alike, is great for any parents wishing to learn some new techniques. Parents will meet others and discuss issues and ideas, guided by a certified facilitator Bridget Young, MS LLP. This group runs for 6 consecutive Monday evenings, and restitution for all 6 weeks is required. There is a kids group running concurrently for those interested, the Kids INTEGRATED Group. Spots in both groups fill up fast, so call soon to reserve!
