Healthy Relationships

In this group, we explore the elements of a healthy relationship. We develop techniques for boundary setting, assertiveness, realistic goal setting, and decision making. We increase our understanding of abuse, abusive family dynamics, dysfunctional family patterns, and feelings, with an emphasis on anger, fear, anxiety, guilt, and grief. For more information, send an email to ellenn@awareak.org or call (907)586-6623.

Nurturing Parenting Program

The Nurturing Parenting Programs work with the whole household to build nurturing skills. Each family gets a plan for support and learning based on their unique needs. We make sure that parents are getting their needs met so they can show up in healthy ways. The work is done through a combination of one-on-one sessions with the family, as well as group sessions with other families. By building nurturing skills, we focus on the positive and take concrete steps toward healthier family dynamics. These programs are trauma-informed and evidence-based, with a 35-year track record to back them up. AWARE has a trained facilitator offering both the core program and the program designed for Families in Substance Abuse, Treatment & Recovery. To learn more call (907)586-6623.
