Two Class Sessions Set for Parents of Teens

CLFC Class for Parents of Teens

‘Creating Lasting Family Connections’ Classes

We are offering two free multi-week workshops for parents of teens this winter. Creating Lasting Family Connections sessions will be held during the day on Mondays and during the evening on Wednesdays.

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.

This is a grant-funded series available at no charge.


Mondays, February 1 – March 14, 2016

12 – 1:30 p.m.


Wednesdays, February 3 – March 16

7 – 9 p.m.

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

This series is made possible through a grant provided by the Washtenaw Community Health Organization and the Michigan Department of Community Health, Office of Recovery Oriented Systems of Care, Bureau of Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Section.

Collaborative partners include Karen Bergbower & Associates, Key Development Center, Inc., LACASA Center, and Livingston County Catholic Charities.
