A parent support group is forming for the Boulder Jewish community. It will accommodate up to eight parents of older children/adult children with significant disabilities, led by Cathy J. Cohn, PhD, LCSW, a clinical social worker and psychologist in private practice in Boulder. The group will meet eight times on Monday nights from 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm, twice monthly, beginning on Monday, Sept. 9 through December 16, 2013 at Congregation Har HaShem in Boulder.
Participation is free of charge, thanks to support from a Limmud Colorado-Inspired Jewish Learning Grant from Rose Community Foundation and by Congregation Har HaShem, and Dr. Cathy Cohn.
The group will focus on the poignant path of raising and caring for children with significant or severe disabilities and helping parents find inner resources to handle the challenges that parenting a child with disabilities brings.
- Participants must be able to attend all eight sessions.
- Participants must be parents of an adult child or of a child 10 years old or older who has a significant disability (could be mental illness), so that their child/adult child requires extra support. If the group does not fill, parents of younger children will be considered.
- If space allows, two parents of the same household can attend.
Those interested in participating should send an email to Susan Glairon at email@example.com by August 31, 2013. Space is limited, and eligibility will be based on program requirements, as well as the date the email was sent.
