Mom Power: A Therapeutic Intervention for Mothers of Young Children

Mom Power is a trauma-informed parenting and self-care skills group designed for mothers of young children (ages 0-5). Parenting is hard enough under the best circumstances and when you add risk factors–such as perinatal mental health difficulties, maternal history of adverse childhood experiences, ongoing adversity, financial stressors, etc—it makes parenting that much harder. Mom Power aims to support caregivers as they support children and to empower mothers to consistently and confidently support their child’s social and emotional development.
