Glendale Heights – Contending with children and teens with emotional health issues or a behavior disorder is a daily struggle for many parents. Too often, they are totally unprepared and defenseless when an emotional crisis occurs. Adventist GlenOaks Therapeutic Day School is hosting a two-hour crisis prevention training workshop for parents and caregivers to help parents stay in control.

 

The workshop will take place from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. March 7 at Adventist GlenOaks Therapeutic Day School’s north campus, 135 North Brandon Drive, Glendale Heights. It is designed to help parents address issues such as

responding to anxiety and setting limits without initiating power struggles. Parents will also create an individualized crisis plan for their child.

 

There is a $5 fee for the workbook. Registration is required by Feb. 29. To register, call 630-545-6160.

 

“These kids are very good at pushing their parents’ buttons,” said John Flannery, licensed professional counselor and clinical program manager of Adventist GlenOaks Therapeutic Day School’s south campus. “We help them develop options on what to do if their child’s behavior becomes unsafe and how to gain back rapport once the crisis has passed.”

 

Flannery conducts the workshop with Dr. John Glennon, licensed clinical psychologist and clinical director of the Adventist GlenOaks Therapeutic Day Schools and Crisis Prevention Institute, which created this training course.

 

Crisis Prevention Institute has a solid 30-year history of training and prevention resources designed to help parents and human service professionals diffuse behaviors of concern while keeping professional and family relationships intact.

 

“If their children aren’t behaving well, we want to help parents maintain their equilibrium,” Flannery said.
