Feelings School is hiring

Feelings Work is hiring fee-for-service therapists (LMSW, LCSW, LMHC) looking for a clinical home where they can grow their skills in child psychotherapy. We are a Brooklyn-based, small group practice with a collaborative approach to treatment.  Our clients often seek us out because they are looking for short-term, family-involved, evidence-informed treatment for their children.  Hours and caseload are flexible, and both individual and group supervision are offered.

Clinicians will be trained and supervised in the implementation of Feelings School, an evidence-informed child psychotherapy model for children aged 5-12 and their caregivers.

Resources for Parents . . . and a last resort

We will be using this blog to share our own thoughts and to forward effective guidance from parents during the quarantine.   The Child Mind Institute has pretty much covered it all.  Check out this guide: https://childmind.org/coping-during-covid-19-resources-for-parents/

And, if you’ve tried all of the evidence-based methods suggested and still find yourself overwhelmed, here is something else to try:

Virtual Feelings School

We hope this finds your family healthy and well in this extreme time.

Our current global situation and response to the Coronavirus outbreak has caused all of us to shift almost every aspect of our daily lives.  Feelings School has changed as well.  We have transitioned entirely–for the time being–to a a virtual platform.  All of the Feelings School clinicians will be available for child therapy and parental guidance sessions via phone or video.  If you would like to hear more about how Virtual Feelings School works, please contact Rachel or Lissa at feelingsschool@gmail.com.

While we’ve had this blog as a component of Feelings School’s web page for years, we have yet to post much!!  That’s about to change. 🙂 Throughout the coming days, we will be using this blog to post articles/activities/links/ideas for parents to help with all aspects of parenting.  Our first link is to an article that we feel provides a good guide for parents during the Coronavirus outbreak:


Feeling School Coffee Hour (for Parents!)


Feelings School has launched mini-courses for parents!  We are offering 6-8 week courses  which will look through the lenses of various therapeutic modalities in order to better understand our children and move toward the parents we hope to be.

Currently, the course is offered to parents with elementary school age children.  Courses to follow will be focused on other parenting cohorts/needs (parenting the adolescent, ADHD support, couples parenting workshop, new parents, etc. . .).

Come share the ups and learn evidence-informed parenting techniques to help manage the downs. Coffee and snacks are on us!

Led by two experienced psychotherapists, this class will use didactic presentations, experiential exercises, and group discussion to help you become your child’s emotional guide and anchor. You will:

  • Explore your current parenting strategies (what’s working and what’s not)
  • Develop new ways to manage challenging child behaviors
  • Assist your child in developing self-awareness
  • Teach your child vital emotional communication skills
  • Help you child acquire skills to manage their big feelings

    A workbook for further exploration will be included in the course.

    Monday mornings 9:15-10:45. Starts APRIL 16th. 116 Clinton Street (@ Joralemon), Rear Office Suite.

This course is currently closed; however, this course will be offered again soon.  Please contact us with your interest (i.e. early parenting, adolescents, ADHD support, etc. . .) and availability ( mornings, evenings, weekends).
