6 Thursdays, February 3-March 10, 6:30–7:30 PM
The group will meet in person on the first and last week, and the other sessions will be on Zoom.
$110 for the six-week session; EDCJCC Member Rate $92
Facilitated by Catherine Coogan, Ph.D.

Pregnant for the first time? Looking to create a community with other expecting moms to exchange ideas and find support? This group will meet weekly for six weeks to provide a safe and facilitated space for moms-to-be to discuss their experiences and learn from one another.  On the first and last weeks (February 3 and March 10), we will meet in person at the EDCJCC, and then we will meet virtually on Zoom for middle four weeks. We will explore several topics, including: concerns about childbirth and parenting; balancing family with work outside the home; navigating new relationships with your partner, parents, and in-laws; and recognizing post (and pre)-partum depression and anxiety.  The group will be kept small so that connections can be fostered easily, even in a virtual space.

SECOND THOUGHTS: ADAPTING TO BABY #2
3 Wednesdays: February 23, March 2, and March 9

8:00-9:00 PM
$62 for the three-week session
Facilitated by Taylor Lerner, Psy.D

Are you expecting baby #2? Looking to create a community with other second time parents to exchange ideas and find support? This group will meet weekly via Zoom for three weeks to provide a safe space for second time parents-to-be to discuss their experiences and learn from one another. We will explore several topics, including: managing your big kid’s (big!) feelings before, during, and after welcoming the new baby; kid-care and self-care with two; navigating new relationships and new roles; and the complicating factors of Covid-19. Find support and connections while eating your lunch!
The group will be kept small so that connections can be fostered easily, even in a virtual space, and also so that in-person outdoor meet-ups can be organized safely if the group wants.

VIRTUAL SERIES: Navigating Support Services for School-Aged Children in DC
Mar 1 @ 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm

THREE TUESDAYS, MARCH 1, 8, and 15, 8:00-9:00 PM
FREE but registration is required
Led by Maria Blaeuer, Director of Programs and Outreach at Advocates for Justice and Education (AJE) and Lauren Siegel, Psy.D, Director of Clinical Services at the Kingsbury Wellness & Learning Group

This interactive three-part series is for DC families of school-aged children (ages 4-12) who suspect that their child might benefit from learning and/or behavioral supports. We will discuss what rights you have in terms of accessing support, how to obtain an evaluation through both public and private channels, what the evaluation process actually looks like, how to understand the landscape of available educational and behavioral support structures, and how to use your evaluation results to acquire support services, including through the DC public school system.  Led by experts in the fields of neuropsychological assessments and education law and advocacy, each part of the series will include a formal presentation followed by lots of time for questions and discussion.
