About the Skyland Trail Family Education Series

Parenting a teen is challenging, especially if your child is experiencing symptoms of anxiety, depression, or OCD.

This education series, led by clinical professionals from the Skyland Trail adolescent residential psychiatric treatment program in Atlanta, provides parents with evidence-based tools to support their child's mental, emotional, and social development.

These virtual presentations are offered via zoom video webinar. Details and registration for each event is listed below.

This series is made possible through a partnership with Fusion Academy and Archway Academy.

Finding a Middle Path: Dealing with Issues of Control and Compromise in Parenting Teens

About this Event:
As parents, it can be hard to know when to draw the line and if you are being too strict or too loose when it comes to parenting your teen. This session will explore the issues of control and compromise through expert-led discussions as well as an experiential learning component from our art therapist. No prior art skills are necessary!

Attendees will learn about: the difference between normal teenage struggles and issues of clinical concern that may require professional help; a new perspective on the role of control in the parent/teen relationship; creative ways to explore those roles at home; and practical strategies for approaching topics like house rules effectively and with confidence.
