Empowerment support group for ages 11-14: The same powerful tools learned in our fun Empowerment Camps. Research has shown that there are five skills that characterize high-risk versus low-risk youth – the five Cs of competency.
1) Critical school competencies
2) Concept of self, self-esteem, and self-efficacy
4) Coping ability
The Empowerment Support Group will focus on one skill each week, covering skills two through five in each four-week session. The skills will be repeated every four weeks and the activities will change each month/four weeks. [Critical school competencies are assumed to be covered by each child’s school.]
4 sessions @ $100. Meets Tuesdays 4-5:30 pm.
Praises for the Empowerment camps:
Parent: “I saw whenever my child was angry, my child used these skills.”
Participants: “The courtroom bargaining [drama therapy] made me feel good,”
“I liked doing the crafts that taught you stuff.”
“I liked learning about your mind.”
“I learned a lot.”
Mommy Zen’s support groups for parents provide a safe, confidential setting in which parents can experience a variety of insights and new ways of looking at things while experiencing the support of other group members.
