Passages Class for Teens and Parents

A six week class that meets on October 13, 20, 27 and November 3, 10, 17
From 6:30-8:15pm at The Clay County Juvenile Office (351 E. Kansas, Liberty)

A safe space for teens to turn their troubles into gifts and to have a more meaningful passage to adulthood. Skills and creative activities are offered for four main passages: physical, emotional, mental, and social. Parents are encouraged to explore parenting skills that can enhance the teen's changes. Ancient initiation stories are told to awaken each person's unique style and imagination. Teens and parents will be together for the first part of the evening and separate for the last half.

The seminar is intended for Clay County residents, children ages 13 to 16, and with at least one parent attending. Parents may also attend without their children.

This course is facilitated by David Strabala, LCSW, juvenile office counselor and storyteller

There are no fees to attend this course but you MUST CALL to be included in this class as space is limited. Contact DAVID STRABALA at 736-8405 with your questions and to reserve your place, or email him at A commitment to attend all six classes is expected. Refreshments will be served.
