GPS for Parents is based on over 20 years of work by the founders of MotherWoman, Annette Cycon, LICSW and Liz Friedman, MFA. Their innovative support group model has been successfully replicated nationally and has been shown to have significant positive effects on parenting. GPS for Parents is culturally co-created to ensure that all parents benefit from this approach to peer support. It’s geared to providing the map to help naviage the challenges of parenting. This group is an integrated and intersectional community-based approach that supports the full spectrum of parenting.
This training welcomes professionals and community leaders who serve and reflect diverse communities including fathers, mothers and gender non-conforming parents; parents who are facing the challenges of new parenting including perinatal emotional complications, addiction, incarceration, racism and other oppressions, as well as parents from diverse traditions and cultures.
Come and join us in this three day training, March 5 through March 7, for Group Peer Support for perinatal Parents and Parents in Recovery. Participating in the full three days is strongly encouraged. CEU’s pending.
