 Thursdays, 1:00 pm, June 4 – July 9 over Zoom

For Parents of children 0-5 years old

Registration Required – Click here to sign up online or email children@pawlinglibrary.org for assistance

Our library has partnered with experienced therapist and support group leader, Stephanie Sandler, PH D, LMHC of Becoming Mental Health Counseling, and other area libraries to provide caregivers a supportive space for themselves. Join a community of parents dealing with the unexpected hurdles of parenting young children during the Coronavirus epidemic together. During a time of increased isolation, finding ways to connect with other parents and families with common experiences can be refreshing and beneficial. This program is participant driven, and it is recommended for optimal support that participants attend as regularly as they are able. However, interested caregivers are welcome to attend as few or as many as they can. All participants must adhere to group guidelines and norms to maintain a comfortable, welcoming, and safe atmosphere for all.

*This support group is not considered a therapeutic support group. Though led by a mental health professional with experience in supporting parents and families, this support group does not take the place of personalized mental l health treatment, and should not be treated as such.
