We are really good raising children to be safe,we encourage them to be careful, to think before they act, to avoid risk. What we are not good at äóñ and what has been lost in our contemporary culture - is how to raise kids to be curious and take effective and adaptive risks. It is an undervalued trait, and one that, in fact, runs counter to our admonitions for safety. This workshop will use ACT to engage parents in discussion about parenting children and teens with OCD, and through exercises, role plays, and demonstrations, support them in parenting flexible, curious, and brave youngsters.
