As a parent, what do you do when your grown son or daughter seems stuck making a successful transition to adulthood? You don’t want to stand by helplessly as your child struggles. But how can you find the right balance of being supportive without doing all the work?
Too often, there isn’t a place where parents can talk freely about their struggling adult child – especially when it seems everyone else’s children are moving ahead as planned.
CEBTOhio’s weekly education and support group for parents is designed to provide that space. It offers timely evidenced-based education on the dynamics between parents and stuck adult children. Informed by SPACE treatment and Dialectical Behavior Therapy, the group teaches the principals of accommodation while offering concrete skills to manage the stress of parenting an adult child.
Specific education is provided to help parents re-define ways to provide support. This includes managing the stress of emotions, and concerns about accepting or changing household expectations that are within reason for each family.
Each week, parents or caregivers share their accomplishments and challenges in supporting their young adult. In this environment, participants receive valuable feedback and support from each other. Also, new topics are introduced weekly by the facilitator. The group is highly interactive and is designed to give members an opportunity to learn new skills in a supportive way.
