Details:

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is an evidence-based cognitive behavioural approach that has been shown to be effective in managing difficult emotions and thoughts so that we can respond to events in a way that is consistent with our important personal values.  

This series of ACT sessions, open to parents of high school aged teens, helps parents maintain a mindful and compassionate stance toward themselves and their teens in the face of  highly challenging teen behaviour. It offers mindfulness-based strategies for managing the distress that comes with seeing a teen behave in a way that is risky and self-destructive. It helps parents connect with what’s most important to them, stay grounded at critical moments and take practical steps that get them closer to being the parent they want their teens to have.
