Class Series Set for Parents of Teens

CLFC Class

LACASA Center is offering a free six-week workshop for parents of teens. Creating Lasting Family Connections will be held on Wednesdays beginning April 6, 2016.

This program, designed for parents of teens age 11 – 17, provides parents with support, insights and information about the challenges facing teens today—including designer drugs and substance abuse.

Parents will learn about the developmental stages of adolescence and the behaviors that accompany these phases. The workshop also explores how to enhance family communication skills and reinforce positive changes.

The series is offered at no charge and will be held on Wednesdays from 6 – 7:30 p.m. at LACASA, 2895 W. Grand River Ave., Howell. Creating Lasting Family Connections concludes on May 11, 2016.

Individual family counseling sessions are available during, as well as after the program concludes to address personal parenting concerns.
