S.O.L.A.C.E. Youth Circle
S.O.L.A.C.E (Supporting Our Littles through Adverse Childhood Experiences)

A special Play and Learn Lab for youth 8-12 years old focused helping our children heal from ACES. The Black CDC, Martin and Muir Counseling and Play Cousins Collective will partner to host this 7 month program beginning March. 20th 2021.

Families raising Black children who have experienced an ACE are invited to enroll in this series of healing workshops celebrating resiliency, families of all shapes and sizes, and love as it transforms through separation and loss. Children will practice growth mindset skills and learn the power of communicating their feelings and how to manage them.

Each session will include games, art and discussion supported by Black therapists. Families will also be connected to a therapist to set up monthly sessions for their child. All insurance is accepted (financial support is also available for those uninsured).

Parents will have a have a safe space created for peer support and group check ins at the beginning middle and end of the program (see dates below). This space will be led by Martin and Muir Counseling and is an opportunity to share parenting struggles and receive updates on what your children will process during their sessions, including the language and methods used to encourage healing.
