“The Parent Circle was a great way to connect with other families experiencing similar challenges to ours and learn new skills to successfully parent our son. The classes made me a more mindful parent and made me feel more in control at home. And I love the leaders!”

LMCCC's Circle programming offers short-term workshops that incorporate the principles and techniques of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to help participants manage intense emotions, develop greater self-awareness, enhance attention and improve relationships. DBT is a practical, evidence-based treatment that teaches skills for approaching emotional struggles in a non-judgmental and effective way.
Participation in our workshops provides family members with a shared language and toolbox of skills, which can supplement and be reinforced in individual and/or family therapy when needed. For a skills refresher, check out some of the resources on our skills page.

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.
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.
THE TEEN CIRCLE is a highly interactive co-ed workshop for high school students, built on the core DBT skills of Mindfulness and Distress Tolerance. Activities, projects and mock scenarios give students hands on experience and opportunities to practice skills for effective coping. In this safe and confidential environment, teens benefit from learning strategies to improve emotion regulation, attention, and communication.
