Dr. Doft's parent training groups are an integral part of her practice. She provides the longest running ever-evolving parent training groups in New York for raising challenging children. They are run in conjunction with the A.D.D. Resource Center where she is the Director of Parent Training. The center, as well as the population represented in her parenting groups focuses on a wide range of children, not just one diagnosis. The most common feature is that the children have difficulty with emotional or behavioral self-regulation on a constitutional basis. She often says to parents, "You didn't create this but there is a better way of handling it". The training is held in small groups for 6 sequential weeks, given three times a year.
Some parents prefer not to learn as part of a group. They seek indivdual parenting sessions.
