TheraThrive Counseling & Assessment 's Groups

Parent Group

Get support, make new friends, and build community by joining a parent group. Share and discuss the unique challenges faced by parents of gifted, highly sensitive, and exceptional children. Parent groups are based on the SENG model, which is the most widely used system for parenting gifted children. I offer small groups that are both informational and practical, where you will learn specific skills and strategies designed to help with the needs of intense, gifted children. For details, see the Parent Groups page at: www.therathrive.com
