After the Diagnosis:

Denise Baker (MSC, LAC, NCC) and Michele Thorne (CAS) created the After the Diagnosis
series to help parents recover, re-align, and rediscover themselves and their lives after a child has been diagnosed with a disability.

During this 4-part series, participants will learn how:

  • to find meaning in the most challenging parts of their parenting journey
  • their thoughts influence emotions and behaviors
  • to take control of their thoughts to establish a new mindset
  • simple tips and strategies to make time for self-care
  • create goals for them and their child
  • to identify stress before it takes over
