Details:

This series introduces parents of young people who use substances to a mindful and compassionate approach for managing their teens’ risky, self-destructive behaviour. It includes some experiences with practicing mindfulness and, based on moment-to-moment awareness of teens’ actions, provides parents with a framework for understanding difficult behaviour. It offers practical solutions to some common problems, along with the opportunity to develop specific strategies that will be effective for each individual teen and family.

This four-session series is offered to parents of high school aged teens by the Adolescent Medicine Substance Abuse Program at SickKids. Parents may find that participating in Listening for the Door is helpful prior to participating in this second series based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
