The New Parent’s group is a support type group with psycho-education. Participants are invited to share their experiences in a safe and non-judgemental environment, while their confidentiality is respected. The groups are structured to work through the following themes:
- Mood: Depression and Anxiety
- Post-partum Journey: Physical & Emotional Recovery
- Relationships and family dynamics: Communication & Coping
- A Parent’s New Identity: Self Care & Adjustment
- Connecting with your baby (attachment focused)
- Building Your Community: Forming New Relationships and Resources
Our main goal is to offer support to new parents, to act as a catalyst to build a sense of community and to promote relational development to enhance parental and infant mental health outcomes. Additional community-based resources and options for professional support beyond the group is discussed for participants who may feel they need more, or for questions out of the scope of psychotherapy practice.
Participants are welcome to bring their infant with them and are also welcome to continue to attend without their child if they wish.
The cost of the group is $165 for all 6 sessions. Please check with your extended health care benefits to determine if you have coverage for Social Work ( MSW) or Psychotherapy. If you do have coverage, you can submit the professional receipt for reimbursement.
For registration and further information on the group, including the next available series, please email or call Lisa directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or 416-570-2770.
