SENG-Model Parent Support Groups 

A group for parents of gifted children to discuss the social and emotional needs of their children and the parenting issues related to those needs. The emphasis is on positive aspects of parenting, avoiding power struggles, and helping gifted children learn appropriate life skills while enhancing the parent/child relationship and parent self-esteem.

Teen & Women’s Groups

Teen groups are run using the Girls Circle format, which was designed to allow for discussion of topics such as body image, friendship, assertive vs. aggressive or passive responses, stress management, authority figures and mother/daughter relationships. Creative activities and conversation are used to foster peer support, self-esteem, and feelings of empowerment. The topic(s) for the women’s group vary.
