When children become adults, parenting takes on new dimensions. As that relationship evolves, communicating with your adult children can be a source of significant meaning—and stress. 

Maas Center’s Opening Doors is a four-part online course to help you develop the skills to improve (or re-open) the lines of communication with your adult children. Led by licensed marriage and family therapists, with spiritual guidance from Maas Center rabbis, the program provides you with the essential tools, advice, and spiritual guidance to re-establish connections, uphold healthy boundaries, and deepen bonds with your adult children.

You will complete Opening Doors equipped to confidently bridge generational gaps and build deeper connections with your children.

Upcoming Class: TBD
