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 via Zoom for six weeks to provide a safe and facilitated space for moms to discuss their experiences and learn from one another.  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, and also so that in-person outdoor meet-ups can be organized safely if the group wants. Facilitated by Heather Diamond, Psy.D.

VIRTUAL WORKSHOP: Parenting Without Power Struggles
Oct 28 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

“You need to eat four more pieces!” . . . “Bedtime NOW” . . .  “NO!  I do it!”  If this sounds familiar, you are not alone.  Power struggles are maddening for parents, and, it turns out, not good for children either. Putting these struggles in a developmental context, this workshop will provide strategies for how to encourage your child’s growing need to assert independence while still maintaining your control and authority. Struggles around mealtime, potty training, cooperation and others will be addressed.
