Additional details: This research study aims to strengthen the parenting alliance, explore the nature of parent/child attachment, discover methods to deescalate conflict, and introduce ways to build more trust and safety with each other in the family. On Friday night, we will meet just with parents to strengthen their caregiving relationship. On Saturday, teens will join their parents and with group support, have an opportunity to communicate about their experience guided by structured exercises. Contact Dr. Withers for more details.
