Do you want to learn how to best manage your child‘s difficult moments?  Want to understand how to improve communication and relationships in your house?  We are thrilled to be offering parent skills classes that teach proven methods of decreasing challenging behaviors while improving emotion regulation, communication, attention and relationships.    

THE PARENT CIRCLE is a multimedia workshop that will teach you a range of skills targeted to help with parenting challenges. These skills are the foundation of DBT, a compassionate evidence-based approach. The Circle groups are co-led by our DBT team: Alan Dienstag, Psy.D., Katie Sawyer, Ph.D., Joan Chess, School Psychologist, and Christine Danberg, LCSW. 


This workshop is unique in that we teach concrete and proven DBT strategies in a parenting skills format. Parents benefit from learning strategies to help their child improve emotion regulation, attention, and communication, while decreasing challenging behaviors.
