Workshop Descriptions

6/23 -- “Anxiety and Depression in Children and Adolescents”

Presented by: Candice Candelaria, M.M.F.T., Marriage & Family Therapist

Anxiety and depression disrupt many of our homes these days. They settle into our lives seemingly unannounced and set up residency without asking permission. While a degree of these feelings are something everyone experiences throughout life, there can come a time when they interfere with our relationships and responsibilities. This workshop is tailored to equip you and your family to spot risk factors for their occurrence, identify their presence, and deal with these undesired guests.

7/21 -- “Developing a Nurturing and Connected Home”

Presented by: Luke Wilkerson, M.A. MFT Intern

Do you find yourself stuck repeating the same conflicts over and over again with your kids? This workshop provides an outline to help you identify the triggers that keep those cycles repeating, and offers insight into how to break the unhealthy patterns and develop nurturing and connected ones.

8/25 – “The Brain Matters”

Presented by: Candice Candelaria, M.M.F.T., Marriage & Family Therapist

Ever wonder why you, or someone you love, seem prone to think, feel or act in certain ways? Do you ever feel like these patterns are fixed; unable to be changed? And how does the way 'I'm wired' fit into my spiritual formation? There has been an emerging cross-section of research linking psychology, neuroscience and faith to address these questions. This talk is designed to help you better understand what science has revealed about the human brain, how you can apply this information to engage constructively with challenging relationships, personal struggles, and guiding those you love. 

9/22 – “Success and Failure”

Presented by: Sarah Proemsey, LPCC - Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

Life hands us all kinds of highs and lows. Learn more about how to support your child when they encounter both success and failure, and how to use these moments to create belonging and deepen connections with one another. Education goals and stresses that often accompany these will also be discussed as well.
