JFS Twists & Turns of Tweenhood: How to Understand and Support Your Child through the Tween Years

JFS Family Connections Presents:

Twists & Turns of Tweenhood: How to Understand and Support Your Child through the Tween Years

Navigating the tween years (roughly 9-12 years old) can be both exciting and challenging for young people and their parents. Behaviors and emotions that may not seem to make sense to an adult may very well be typical for this dynamic age group. Other behaviors or changes in mood may be warning signs that your tween’s safety is at risk.

Join JFS Therapist Carla Huff, MEd, MSW, LCSWA for an informative and open conversation about what parents need to know during this stage of child development. We will discuss both typical and atypical behaviors for this age as well as protective factors, risk factors and warning signs for suicide risk. We will also share resources for receiving support to help you and your child thrive, and hopefully find joy, in this life stage.

Wise Aging
Feb

1:00 PM13:00

Wise Aging

There is no set of instructions for getting older - for the shifts in our social and support networks, the feeling of invisibility, the angst of dealing with aging parents, the mixed signals of entering retirement, or the surprising turns in our relationships with ourselves, our partners, friends, and colleagues.

On the other hand, those currently in this stage can count themselves as part of an extraordinary, history-making generation - pioneers in understanding and making the most of this "third chapter" of life. Many who find themselves in this group will be blessed with unprecedented healthy years ahead, full of potential for learning and growth.

This 9-session experience, created by the Institute for Jewish Spirituality, is designed for those who are 55 and older and is aimed at giving Jewish adults a meaningful place to open up conversations about what it means to get older and to create new understandings about life so we can live with spirit, resilience and joy. Topics are explored using mindfulness and contemplative practices to deepen the inner and outer journeys of participants.

Cost: $150 ($180 for non Beth Meyer members)

Cohort 2: Monday afternoons, 1:00PM - 2:30PM
9 sessions from Feb 3 - Apr 27 (Feb 3, 10, 24, Mar 16, 23, 30, Apr 6, 20, 27)

JFS Senior Connections: Letting Go and Moving On

Older adults often face unique challenges that affect their physical and mental health. You may confront negative stereotypes about aging that have been shown to directly affect health and function.  Holding on to resentments into old age can also result in mental and physical damage over time.    

The good news is that positive thinking skills and proactive strategies can offset the negative impact of ageism and help you let go of resentments.  

Join Abby Palmer, MSW, JFS Senior Services Social Worker to learn how to deal with past resentments and, more importantly, skills to let go and move on from these grudges and hurts before they affect our wellbeing.

JFS Adult Connections: Keep Calm and Self-Care

In our busy lives, we don’t think twice before putting self-care on the back burner. Instead, we overwork, skip exercising, eat unhealthy foods and cut back of socializing with friends and family. But self-care is more important than you think. In fact, it is crucial for our physical, emotional and mental well-being.

Join Limor Schwartz, Director of Clinical and Social Services, as we make sense of the term “self-care”, discuss why we should not ignore and neglect it, and most importantly- practice simple ways to incorporate self-care into our daily lives. In this interactive workshop, you’ll be able to assess self-care’s role in your own life, create a self-care plan and come out calm, and ready to take care of YOU!

Registration is required for this event by 7/10- $10/person or $15/couple. If the cost is a barrier to your participation, please call JFS Program Coordinator, Debbie Ross at 919-676-2200 ext 129.
