CenterSPOTT – Support for Parents of Troubled Teens is a support group developed by and run by parents of teens. These parents often feel at war with their children, defeated, alone, and embarrassed. CenterSPOTT is a support group. It is not group therapy or counseling, and it offers no advice for "fixing your teen". The goal of CenterSPOTT is to support PARENTS. While connecting with each other and enjoying a greater sense of community, parents are also encouraged to find their center—their own deepest values and dreams—and to live from that center spot. For more information about the group and upcoming support meetings, contact Danise Alleman at 720-437-9823 or firstname.lastname@example.org
