Also known as "SPACE" - this group teaches parents how to support their children in overcoming anxiety. 

This is a psychoeducational group designed to help parents recognize opportunities to empower their children to overcome anxiety, and to work through challenges, leading to stronger, more independent youths. It is a great class to improve outcomes of individual therapy your child is already involved in or as a stand alone resource. SPACE training is also helpful in parenting young adults who are experiencing failure to launch.


This is an 8-week program. You will be provided a link the week of the training to attend the group via Zoom. 


The cost is per family unit - and includes the attendance of 1 or 2 parents from the same family.


Here is the outline for each week:

Week 1: Setting the Stage. Understanding anxiety, personal boundaries, and support in the context of the program.

Week 2: Charting Accommodations. Understanding the role of accommodations and charting their use.

Week 3: Choosing a Target Problem and Informing the Child.

Week 4: Formulating a Plan. Formulating a concrete plan to reduce accommodation while resisting avoidance.

Week 5: Reducing Accommodation: Continued. Discussing child’s reactions to changes and reinforcing progress.

Week 6: Additional Target Behaviors: Preparing Parents to Take the Lead.

Week 7: Additional Target Behaviors: Continued.
