Daring Greatly Online Women's Group

May 15th 2022

The Daring Greatly™ is a program that is based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown. The  Daring Greatly™ group is a powerful, process oriented group where we explore topics such as vulnerability, courage, shame, and worthiness. We examine the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that are holding us back and we identify the new choices and practices that will move us toward more authentic and wholehearted living. The primary focus of the Daring Greatly group is on developing shame resilience skills and developing daily practices that transform the way we live, love, parent, and lead. 

This group is open to women age 19 and up and takes place over the course of 6 weeks 

Become a 3E Parents: Empathic, Empowered, and Effective

July 30th

Join Ryan M. Sheade, LCSW and Erica Tatum-Sheade, LCSW for a 3-hour workshop focusing on how to parent in today's world to ensure that parents are raising fierce, resilient, and confident children.

In this workshop, parents will learn how the parenting journey changes over time and how destructive patterns in the way that we were parented show up in our parenting, as hard as we try not to let them. We will cover the incredibly destructive outcomes of shame-parenting and gain some tools on how to handle the difficult behaviors of children and adolescents without shaming or punishing them. We will discuss resiliency and how to effectively use discipline coupled with understanding to make our children “students” of our teachings rather than “inmates” of our punishments.

Parents come away from this workshop empowered in their own parenting and knowing that they are doing the best they can to manage what is ultimately a nearly impossible task
