Mindfulness Skills for Parents Courses Winter/Spring 2021

For parents of children/adolescents/adults with behavior challenges and/or learning differences

This education program offers instruction in mindfulness practices including meditation and its application for reducing stress and cultivating self-compassion and quality of life for parents.  The program includes didactic presentations, guided meditations and dialogue around how mindfulness can address parenting.  In between classes, participants are instructed to cultivate a daily meditation practice as well as applying mindfulness to parenting and other daily activities. Topics we will be exploring include: What is mindfulness? How can it help me as a parent? How can we better manage our own difficult emotions as parents? How can we move from coping to living more meaningful lives?
