Calling all dads! The incredibly insightful and talented Cristina Young is teaming up with The Nantucket Project to offer a one-time class to fathers. Young recently moved her focus towards working with adults, helping them build and hone their parenting tools, manage anxiety, understand relationships, and navigate family dynamics. While she no longer works directly with kids as her primary clients, she will work with parents and kids, together, in session because this tends to have a more profound impact on healthy family functioning than working solely with the kids. I love that Young understands just how pivotal parents and our relationships with/towards our children are to helping them be healthy and whole.
Please join Cristina Young, LCSW in collaboration with The Nantucket Project on Saturday, January 21 from 8:00am-9:30am for a workshop on how to be the best dad you can be. Learn how to remain calm even when your kids trigger you, respond thoughtfully instead of reacting impulsively, and manage your kids’s expectations about money and privilege. To view the invite and RSVP click here. My only question is when are they offering this class for moms. Sign me up when they do!
