I'm still searching for a therapist or counselor, trained in SPACE treatment, who is available to lead (virtually/online) a group of parents who are trying to practice it. Of course we will pay whatever fee you charge for this type of facilitation, and I think it will also be pretty good online clinical training in a range of families/issues - we are a group of parents of teenagers with anxiety/OCD, from all over the world, and we're eager to practice SPACE. We have each ordered Dr. Lebowitz's new parents' manual, and if we don't find anyone soon, will just try to do book club style discussion with that.
Here's the link to our Facebook group, if any providers here would like to request to join, and get a feel for the parents and kids: https://www.facebook.com/groups/SPACEtreatmentsupport/ Please contact me or respond here if you are interested in facilitating our group. Thank you!
Hello, a colleague and I are starting a virtual SPACE Parent group for parents of children with Anxiety disorders based in the Seattle area (of course, due to the nature of virtual groups, we can offer this more broadly). We are wondering if anyone who has established groups running would be open to share with us about how you are structuring your groups (session length, topics, number of attendees, etc) and things you have learned along the way that you wish you had known at the beginning. Thank you for your time and we appreciate this community.
