Yamhill Support Groups

Organized by
Oregon Family Support Network (OFSN), National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), and Yamhill County Family & Youth Programs
Description

Currently, I am opening up times for parent support groups via Skype. These groups are open to anyone who would like to have interaction with others around the challenges of raising kids (especially those who have behavioral difficulties). In this difficult time, where we are having to stay physically away from others and may not have our usual routines, supports in place, it is important to find ways to have contact with other adults. So, I would encourage you to find some way of engaging in getting support.
I plan to start by offering these two group times going forward:

  • Mondays between 12:00-2:00 pm
  • Tuesdays between 6:00-7:00 pm

I will be sending an email invitation to this Skype meeting to those of you who have been attending parent support groups. I also want to invite anyone who would like to attend, even though you may not have attended before. If you would like to attend one of these groups, please call or email me and let me know, and I will send you an invite. If these days/times do not work for you, please let me know that. Also, if you are not able to attend one of these but would like to talk with me for some individual support or ideas, please reach out and I will be glad to talk with you.


Groups are free and on a drop-in basis, but day/time may change at times, so please call, text (503-435-9107) or email if you plan to attend.

Meeting time
Mondays between 12:00-2:00 pm, Tuesdays between 6:00-7:00 pm

Description

Bringing together parents raising kids with behavioral challenges who want to learn about the CPS approach

WHAT IS THE CPS APPROACH? CPS is a strengths-based, neurobiologically-grounded approach that brings new ideas and new hope for helping kids with behavioral challenges!

Challenging kids typically lack the skill, not the will, to behave well – specifically skills related to problem solving, flexibility and frustration tolerance. The CPS approach avoids the use of power, control and motivational procedures and instead focuses on building helping relationships and teaching skills largely through a process of teaching parents and kids how to resolve chronic problems collaboratively.

FACILITATED BY THINK:KIDS CERTIFIED PARENT MENTOR: Jan Urton

All Parent-to-Parent Overview Groups are confidential. They provide an opportunity to gain a new understanding of challenging behavior and a new way of helping your child, improve your relationship, reduce conflicts, help develop the skills your child needs to succeed, and gain support from other parents

WHO SHOULD ATTEND? Parents: Foster, Adoptive, and Step-Parents and/or Grandparents raising kids with behavioral challenges who are interested in learning about CPS and who live in Yamhill County.

Tuesday evenings in May/June (Six 2-hour sessions—each session will consist of three 40 minute blocks, with 5 minute breaks (so you will connect 3 times each session).
