Getting It Together
A Support and Education Group
Getting It Together addresses coping with stress and the complex job of parenting children with extreme emotions within the supportive context of group meetings. Group members are provided a structured opportunity to talk about their shared experiences, learn from each other, and pick up some helpful techniques along the way.
Getting It Together helps caregivers identify their distress, improve their ability to manage stress and emotion, and develop self-regulation skills. As caregivers develop these skills, they are better prepared to help their children do the same!
Parents that have participated in the Getting It Together group report a high degree of benefit from being in a safe, structured environment, interacting with other caregivers “who get it.” The inter-relationships that form among group participants enhance their sense of belonging, reinforce the skills taught in the sessions, and offer avenues of support for getting additional needs met; greatly reducing common feelings of isolation, hopelessness, and shame.
- Learn tools and strategies for coping with stress
- Develop connection and sense of community with other parents
- Develop empathy and strategies for supporting their children’s emotion regulation.
Once a parent has participated in Getting It Together, they can participate in Roots & Wings (attachment-oriented emotion-regulation for the home).
