PARENT EDUCATION AND SUPPORT GROUP For Parents of Children with ADHD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder and other Behavioral Challenges
Parent Training is recognized as a crucial part of treatment for children with disruptive behaviors. Parenting instincts alone are often not enough to help your child and keep daily life manageable. This monthly group offers the chance to share ideas and receive tools and resources on a variety of topics relevant to parenting children with disruptive behaviors such as ADHD/ODD. Parents receive new tools and practical information, engage in discussions, and share experiences with other parents.
This monthly support group is scheduled to run on Monday evenings.
The support group will have a two-part focus. The first aspect of group will explore the challenges of parenting individuals with Asperger’s and related disorders. The second aspect of each group will allow participants to share and process their own experiences within their families.
Cofacilitators: Jeanne Marron, Ph.D., Clinical Director of ARS
Janine Standish, LPC, Clinical Supervisor of ARS

In the wake of the tragedy at the Boston Marathon, we offer our deepest sympathy to those who have experienced such loss and trauma. We applaud those who gave assistance, comfort and hope to those most in need at the event and in its aftermath.
We would also like to offer some excellent resources materials, courtesy of the Traumatic Loss Coalition, for our readers and their family and friends. This information will be especially helpful to families, school staff and anyone helping children cope with their feelings and questions about this event and other traumas. As one of the trusted adults in children’s lives, you are one of their most influential “helpers.” Please contact us if West Bergen can be of assistance.
Helping Your Children Focus on the Good People in the World
When your children show signs of fear, grief and illness after being exposed to watching or hearing media reports of terroristic violence, there are many ways parents, caregivers and teachers can allay their fears. Mr. Rogers said it beautifully in the following………
Social Anxiety is an intense fear of being humiliated or embarrassed in social situations. It often begins around early adolescense or even younger. Children who suffer from social anxiety are often excessively shy and fear they will say or do something in front of others that will cause embarrassment. It is different from shyness.
