Support groups for mothers and fathers of children with special needs will be meeting beginning February 2016 in Westport. These groups are designed for those looking for information, emotional support, strategies to achieve work/family balance, empowerment, stress management skills, social connection, clarity, deeper connection, and an opportunity to share concerns and gain support in a safe group experience. Topics to be explored include identity shifts; navigating family dynamics including impact on siblings, marriages and extended family; complex grief and healthy coping; effective advocacy and educational considerations; finances and future planning; life within the special needs community, and self-care, among others. They will be led by two therapists who specialize in working with special needs families. The mothers' group will meet Thursdays from 9:30-11:00 AM for 10 weeks, while the fathers' group will meet Tuesdays from 7:15-8:30 PM for 8 weeks. The cost is $85 per week.
