  • “Rejection - The Silver Lining”: A Workshop for Parents
    7:00 pm to 8:30 pm
    SafeSpace Community Engagement Center, 708 Oak Grove Ave, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA

    “Rejection - The Silver Lining” is a parent workshop created to help our teens build resilience in the face of setback.  The discussion will be led by Havi Wolfson Hall, LCSW a Child and Adolescent Therapist from JFCS Parents Place in Palo Alto.  She will be focusing on what to do and say when young people face rejection, for example, in a relationship, internship, sport, prom or with colleges.  This workshop supports parents to share their personal experiences of growth and setback. In this way, they gain a deeper understanding of how challenges and struggles are a part of life and necessary toward building resiliency and opportunities through disappointment. The event will be held on May 22 from 7:00-8:30 pm at our SafeSpace Community Engagement Center at 708 Oak Grove Ave., Menlo Park. Register through Eventbrite

  • Give Me a Break! Lunch Group for Local Family/Teen Therapists
    12:00 pm to 2:00 pm
    SafeSpace Community Engagement Center, 708 Oak Grove Ave, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA

    You are invited to a new brown bag lunch group that will meet the first Thursday of each month at the SafeSpace Community Engagement Center, 708 Oak Grove Ave., Menlo Park. The first meeting will be Thursday, May 3 from 12:00-2:00 pm.  Lunch will be provided so please RSVP through Eventbrite.

    This informal gathering for clinicians in our community will provide a space to meet, relax, bounce ideas off of, provide support for colleagues and develop positive relationships with peers to minimize the effects of secondary trauma.  Secondary trauma, also referred to as vicarious trauma or compassion fatigue, often results from doing this type of work but having a support system in place helps provide perspective and a clinician’s ability to connect with others in meaningful ways.  Please consider joining us.

    We are pleased to be partnering with JFCS Parent's Place in Palo Alto.  Their clinical staff focuses on issues such as child anxiety, depression, and self-regulation and their staff will be joining us at these brown bag lunches monthly.
