It is often said that children do not come with an instruction manual. At Alvord Baker, we recognize the need and desire of many parents to learn, grow and receive support, as they guide their children. For this reason, during various times of the year, we offer parent groups and parenting seminars. If you are interested, please contact Dr. Mary Alvord at 301-593-6554 ext. 14 for additional information. Also, please visit our Parent Workshops page for additional information.
Members of our staff provide a select curriculum over a number of weeks to help parents learn new strategies and coping skills. This curriculum may include the program: Systematic Training for Effective Parenting.
Various members of our professional staff provide individual seminars throughout the year. Topics may include: Teasing, Bullying, Anger Management, and Sibling Rivalry. Seminars will be announced through parent letters and posted on our bulletin boards with one-month notification prior to the seminar. Attendance is limited to permit questions/answers as well as discussion.
