Parenting Group for Families in Greater Waterbury

Wellspring Counseling Services is excited to share the launch of a new parenting group for families in the greater Waterbury area. The Angry and Defiant Child: A Group for Parents Who Have Tried EVERYTHING will take place at Wellspring’s Outpatient Offices on Straits Turnpike in Middlebury this fall.

Join Wellspring therapists Kathy Dowling, LMFT and Pam Hemingway for this family centered approach to parenting children with challenging behaviors. Facilitated video discussion and workbooks along with group support will guide participants in learning to respond rather than react to their children.

This 8-week series will begin on October 13 and take place on Thursday evenings from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM. The cost of the 8-week series is $80 per family (sliding fee scale available). Babysitting subsidies are also available. Space is limited.

To register or learn more, please call 203-758-2296.

This group has been funded, in part, by the Healthy Communities Fund of the Connecticut Community Foundation. Participation in this group is limited to residents of: Beacon Falls, Bethlehem, Bridgewater, Cheshire, Goshen, Litchfield, Middlebury, Morris, Naugatuck, New Milford, Oxford, Prospect, Roxbury, Southbury, Thomaston, Warren, Washington, Waterbury, Watertown, Wolcott, and Woodbury.
