Communication skills, friendship, and fun were the themes of the Mother-Daughter Circle group at the PARTNERS Family Resource Center at Ready Springs School. Four moms and five daughters recently completed the program which was co-sponsored by Soroptimist International of the Sierra Foothills. Led by facilitators Sharyn Turner and Casey McCormick, this innovative, six-session program included discussion, role plays, learning how to problem solve effectively, and dinner.
“The response from participants was really positive,” said Casey McCormick. “They said that the group helped their relationships and that they want to come back for a Circle reunion soon.” PARTNERS network of Family Resource Centers is funded through Nevada County Safe Schools Healthy Students and First Five grants.
