10-session groups for parents of children 0-2 years old, or 2-5 years old.
This innovative, 10-week workshop provides parents with a model that views children’s behavior as meaningful. The group will focus on specific topics, such as temperament, discipline, and emotional regulation, as well as developing an understanding of the thoughts and feelings that underlie your interactions with your child. This capacity – to reflect upon your own and your child’s experience, and respond from this informed place – lies at the heart of effective parenting. Research has demonstrated that developing this reflective capacity is a valuable way to help parents strengthen relationships with their children, increase meaningful connection in the family, and support healthy cognitive and social-emotional development.
