Parent Workshops

Mindfulness for Parents

Being a parent is stressful! This workshop focuses on mindfulness techniques and will give participants “hands-on” practice with some self-calming strategies. By being mindful you can understand, tolerate and deal with your emotions in healthy ways.  In addition, we will explore how helping our children learn to pause and choose helps them manage their emotions and is a key building block in family communication, school success, and positive peer interactions.
