Parenting Consultation Groups

Mindful Parenting

Tuesdays 9:00 am - 10:30 am PST via Zoom April 16 - June 4, 2024

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 apply 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?
