At times all parents feel lost or without a clue about what our child might need from us. Imagine what it might feel like if you were able to make sense of what your child was really asking from you.

The Circle of Security Parenting™ program is based on decades of research about how secure parent-child relationships can be supported and strengthened.

Learning Objectives of the Program:

– Understand your child’s emotional world by learning to read the emotional needs
– Support your child’s ability to successfully manage emotions
– Enhance the development of your child’s self esteem
– Honor your innate wisdom and desire for your child to be secure

DBT Skills Group

Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) is a type of therapy originally developed by Marsha Linehan. DBT is often associated with the treatment of borderline personality disorder. It is particularly useful for young people experiencing suicidal thoughts, self-harm, drug and alcohol misuse, labile emotions and impulsive behaviours. However, DBT skills are useful for all young people in managing difficult emotions and in managing challenging interpersonal relationships.

Farren Psychology offers an 8-week DBT skills group covering the following topics:

– Emotional Regulation

– Distress Tolerance

– Interpersonal Effectiveness

– Walking the Middle Path

Our DBT skills groups run in line with the QLD school terms on a Saturday morning.
