Adult Children of Difficult Older (And Not So Old!) Parents

Sadly, some people treat their own loved ones very rudely, with hurtful sarcasm, irrational demands, constant criticism, and undeserved anger.  This course will cover concepts that empower the mind, insights that comfort the heart, and skills that guide actions, with the goal of participants learning to protect their hearts, effectively love their hard-to-love older parents, and  create a healthy legacy for their own children.  We will explore the meaning of love, personality, family, duty, growing, caring, honoring, and the role of grief, assertiveness, realism, courage, and learning.

Tuesdays, March 21 & March 28

No Cost

Register by Wednesday, March 15

Led by Dr. Paul K. Chafetz, well-known clinical psychologist, practicing since 1982 and former associate professor at UT Southwestern. Learn more at PaulKChafetz.com
