Difficult Conversation with the Parents of Teens

February 28, 2024 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST

Teen professionals have the unique opportunity of not only engaging with teens themselves, but having an impact on their larger family system. What we don’t talk about, though, is just how challenging and even at times frustrating this can be.

Join a cohort of teen professionals in a theoretical and practical laboratory hosted by The Jewish Education Project in partnership with Selah as we explore the spiritual underpinnings of effective communication around difficult topics, as well as identify and practice tools, skills, and traits that will help us move our work forward.

For additional information or if you have questions, please reach out to Loen Amer, Senior Manager, Teen Education and Engagement.


Selah is a participation-celebrated, perfection-averse, everyone-welcome community of people in recovery and recovery-curious, grounded in Jewish tradition.
