Our LAUNCH Parent Group covers psychoeducation about the emerging adult stage of development, skills-based strategies for supporting your emerging adult, mindfulness techniques for becoming a more effective parent, as well as validation and support for parents as they walk through this exciting and sometimes difficult stage with their child.

When: The group will meet every Tuesday at 4 p.m., Sept. 11, through Dec. 11, 2018 (there will be no group Nov. 20 or Nov. 27). There is no fee to attend the group, although we ask for parents to commit to missing no more than two groups in the semester. 

Where: 2115 Wisconsin Avenue, NW, Suite 200 

Priority will be given to parents of past or current Launch participants, although parents of emerging adults not in the Launch program will be considered if space allows. The group will be capped at eight participants in order to maximize the experience. Please contact us today if you are interested.

This group will be led by Joslyn Hills, LGPC, MEd, a psychotherapist and parent educator. She is the mother of two emerging adults, ages 20 and 23.
