A free support group for parents of young children with social communication difficulties, ADHD, and Aspergers is being held in Brooklyn Heights by Steven Goldman, Psy.D. Dr. Goldman is both a licensed psychologist and the parent of a child with a social communication disorder. He has more than 20 years experience working in both schools and hospitals conducting individual and group therapy, as well as administering neuropsychological and psychological evaluations.
He has also worked as an ice cream man and a dishwasher, and does not believe in any kind of elitist or authoritarian group leader philosophy. During Dr. Goldman’s years teaching psychology at various universities he has always emphasized compassion and mindfulness as therapeutic techniques.
These techniques, and those other parents will offer, may be useful in helping you manage your stress and find solutions as you and your child navigate through problems related to relationships, the school system, and the pitfalls of online video games.
The best therapeutic help for a young child comes from an effective, happy, compassionate parent who knows other effective parents. The group is free, but a small donation is encouraged to cover the high cost of the meeting room, across the street from Brooklyn borough hall, a beautiful Brooklyn Heights place for interesting parents.
