Parents of Teens
Parents of teens with epilepsy grapple with many issues – some teen related, others more epilepsy specific. You Are Not Alone: Parenting your Teen with Epilepsy is a program developed specifically to target the issues faced by these parents. It is the culmination of a collaborative effort involving parents, Epilepsy Foundation program staff and clinicians.
You Are Not Alone: Parenting Your Teen with Epilepsy consists of a series of six educational and experiential workshops designed to explore the many issues facing parents. Topics include, but are not limited to self-care, letting go, effective communication, and feel more confident in making tough parenting decisions and maintain an ongoing support and resource network.
The program consists of a series of six workshops. Each workshop is both educational and experiential. As a participant of the program, we ask that parents:
- Attend all six (6) workshops
- Actively participate in all workshop activities
- Complete homework assignments
- Ask questions
We must have between 4 and 12 parents per workshop. Each workshop is two hours and fifteen minutes long.
To find out more or request that we schedule a workshop, please connect with Epilepsy Foundation of Southeast Tennessee directly.
