Parenting and Marriage Seminars Coming up at the Y

Friday, September 1, 2017

This fall the Kosciusko Community YMCA wants to help you grow as a family by offering two parenting classes and a series of marriage seminars. They’re open to everyone; you don’t have to be a member of the Y to participate in these opportunities.

The YMCA is partnering with Crosswinds Counseling to offer a monthly seminar titled “Maximizing Your Marriage” over the course of 6 months. These seminars will enable individuals and families to claim control, restore relationships and build hope. They will include various assessments and exercises addressing the topic covered each month. The seminars are informative, thought provoking and entertaining, and offer an emotionally supportive and interactive experience. The seminars are facilitated by Crosswinds Therapists and/or Family Coaches. They will take place in the Parkview Warsaw YMCA Multi-Purpose Room 2, 6:00-7:30 p.m., the 3rd Wednesday of each month from September 2017 to March 2018 (we will not meet in December).

The first class will be held on Wednesday, September 20 and will focus on communication, including how to express yourself. The October class will deal with healthy conflict management and compromise. You can register for one seminar or all six. See more information on our website at www.kcymca.org.

In addition to the marriage seminars, the Y will also be offering the opportunity to grow as a parent this fall with Tierney Boggs PCI, certified parent coach, of Be Still Parent Coaching, through two nights of large group teaching and interactive discussion. Childcare can be used by members of the Y and everyone is welcome. Please register at the Welcome Center. Classes will be held in the Parkview Warsaw YMCA Multi-Purpose Room 2. The first class will be held on September 25, 6:00-7:30 p.m. “Too Busy for Authenticity: Mastering the art of being still.” Through this workshop, participants will explore how God envisioned parents to be still within our demanding culture. And on Thursday, September 28, 6:00-7:30 p.m. “What we Focus on Grows: Being intentional about what we see in our children.” Participants will look at the benefits of learning and focusing on our and our children’s strengths, and learn the power of our words in creating our perspective.

If you have any questions about these opportunities, please contact Matt Goebel, the YMCA’s Director of Christian Emphasis, at mgoebel@kcymca.org or 574-269-9622 x235.
