Wellspring is offering two support groups for seniors to discuss dynamics of living with their adult children. These workshops at The Southbury Senior Center, 561 Main Street South, are designed to offer an opportunity for participants to express their problems, feelings and ideas while gaining insight from others in a safe, supportive environment. Wellspring co-founders, Drs. Richard and Phyllis Beauvais who provide consultation, training and clinical presentations - on topics such as conflict resolution, parent education and comunication skills – facilitate the sessions. Please contact the Southbury Senior Center at (203) 262-0651 to join the groups or for more information.
