Listening for the Door: A four-part series

Series sessions: November 1, 8, 15 and 22, 2017

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.

For more information, please call or leave a message for Mary Bell at 416-813-8687 or speak to Sue Duncan or Angela Edoo at 416-813-5097.

About the Listening for the Door Series

This four-session series is the first of two different series offered to parents of high school aged teens by the Adolescent Medicine Substance Abuse Program at SickKids. Parents who participate in Listening for the Door can choose to join later in a second series based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
