This is a group for mothers and daughters (ages 11-16) who want to explore their relationship dynamics, learn from others, and strengthen their relationship. The group work will include opportunities for experiential exercises and effective communication techniques. This dynamic process will help repair ruptures and foster healthy bonds through journaling prompts and lively discussion.
The group meets for 10 weeks remotely via secure video conferencing and is limited to 6 mother-daughter pairs. A 15-minute video screening call is required to determine appropriateness for the group.
