Group for Parents of Children with Special Needs and/or Receiving Therapy: This support group is about enriching the lives of parents with children of any age who have special needs and/or are receiving counseling services. Its purpose is to allow parents or caregivers to meet, discuss experiences and concerns about their child, share resources and learn guilt free self-care strategies. This weekly group is facilitated by a psychotherapist and may be reimbursed by insurance. This group meets Tuesdays from 6 to 7:30 p.m. for eight weeks beginning January 17. You must RSVP to participate to Jennifer Porter, LCSW at 973-769-3037.

Weekly sessions include relaxing hypnosis, support, and tips for success. This group is led by a licensed professional counselor & certified hypnotherapist. Weekly attendance is strongly encouraged for best results. This group meets Fridays at noon for six weeks beginning January 20. The cost is $300 for the full six weeks.
