CODOP Meetup at Unity Church
Everyone knows some truly fine people in their in their thirties to sixties whose older parents treat them really badly, with hurtful sarcasm, irrational demands, constant criticism, and undeserved anger. These frustrated, unappreciated adult son and daughters simply want to be good to their parents. If you are one of these people yourself, you are invited to attend this new support group organized by Dr. Paul Chafetz, a Dallas clinical psychologist. The monthly meetings are free and open to the public, and held at Unit Church every fourth Tuesday from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Dr. Chafetz is a full time practitioner, former university professor, and author of the forthcoming book, Loving Hard-to-Love Parents: A Handbook for Adult Children of Difficult Older Parents. Participants will find mutual support and a discussion of coping strategies.

What we're about

Are you an adult, age 25-60, whose parent treats you really badly? Is your parent hurtful, sarcastic, irrational, demanding, critical, or angry? You are a CODOP (Child of Difficult Older Parent)!

This MeetUp is for CODOPs to meet and learn how to

1. Protect your heart

2. Effectively love your hard to love older parent, and

3. Create a healthy legacy for your own children.

Dr. Paul Chafetz, a Dallas clinical psychologist, will facilitate group discussion, learning, and sharing. For the past 30 years, Dr. Chafetz has helped the frustrated and unappreciated adult children of difficult parents learn concepts to empower their minds, insights to comfort their hearts, and skills to improve their actions.
