Parents United Group
Parents United Groups are held in a small group setting of 6-8 parents teaching a variety of mindfulness practices to begin in their home immediately. They focus on mindfulness practices such as breathing, walking, meditation, yoga, and self-awareness to be better equipped to self-regulate unpleasant circumstances directing their attention to the present moment and passing this on to their kids.
Teaching mindfulness practices to calm the central nervous system releasing stress and anxiety. A journal from the Psychiatric Clinics of North America states that randomized control trials show mindfulness-based intervention practices effectively treat a broad range of symptoms such as anxiety, depression, and emotional distress.
Our goal is to launch 2 groups, serving 6 parents per group. Groups offer members a safe space to share experiences implementing new strategies at home bring questions and seek support from peers. Members who participate in mindfulness groups benefit from a strong sense of community where each participant is accepted, respected, and reinforced each step of their journey.
Teen and Young Adult Empowerment Programs
Teen and Young Adult Empowerment Coaching
Our Empowerment Coaching guides adolescents ages 13-18 and young adults ages 18-25 who are experiencing episodes of anxiety or depression, self-esteem, insecurities, substance use, struggles with dynamic living situations, or other situations that interfere with their daily lives and mental wellness. Clients are coached using the five basic principles behind motivational interviewing.
UFC coaches work with each client through empathetic listening—adjusting to client resistance—to help them understand and monitor current behaviors, gain conflict handling tools, and support self-efficacy.
Empowerment Coaching helps adolescents and young adults set realistic goals and break through self-limiting patterns to achieve confidence and security on their journey towards Independence. Each program includes a series of 12 weekly, 60-minute one-to-one coaching sessions.
Teen Positive Action Groups
UFC teen and young adult positive action groups are held in-person and led by a trained Positive Action facilitator. These evidenced-based programs are designed to enrich the whole-person with focus on mental health, substance abuse prevention, trauma, and social-emotional learning.
Facilitators use role play, scripts, dialogues, and hands-on approaches to discuss the real challenges that collectively impede self-sufficiency and living one’s best life. Participants learn positive, intellectual, emotional, and social life skills.
With data-driven assessments we are able to measure results through student self-reports.
These 2-hour workshops will be held 2 times a year at the Gateway Community Center designed to provide community resources, strategies, and training to be able to apply in the home or place of work.
The workshops could include mental health training, guest speakers, mental health advocates, empowerment, and mindfulness training. Through training and hands-on strategy development, participants learn how to combat mental health and substance abuse stigma, the effect of screen time, healthy boundaries, how to communicate effectively, and how to stop progress-limiting habits and belief systems.
