Both parenting a child and being a child are tall orders in today’s climate, and we would like to offer this page as a resource for support and information to help you and your family. We will be sharing tips and strategies to manage COVID-19, along with posts that navigate the numerous challenges that come with raising caring and courageous youth.  Our goal is to add new material that ranges from original content, to great reads and videos from other experts, as well as articles in the mainstream media that offer additional insight.

We welcome your suggestions and feedback, and want to cover a variety of topics to help you and the community learn more. We encourage you to reach out if there are topics you would like us to cover, and questions you would like answered. And, if you find what you see to be helpful, please like our page on Facebook (@CenterForCBT) and tell your friends and family to do the same! We are very excited to be starting this project, and look forward to sharing this information with you.
