Ever wondered what the science of parenting reveals about the best way to help children thrive? Attachment research reveals that it’s not what happens, but rather how we make sense of experiences and learn to show up fully for our kids that matters most in their development. Filled with fun exercises and discussions, this workshop invites you to help clients explore their parenting history and the practice of being present in ways that can enhance all their relationships. You’ll discover how to help parents:
- Connect emotionally with their kids nonverbally by using touch, tone, facial expressions, gestures, and eye contact
- Develop a coherent narrative of their own upbringing as a way to enable them to be more present with their children
- Learn ways to enhance their capacities for mindsight and deep empathy in giving children the experience of being truly seen
- Incorporate proven strategies for helping children grow toward resilience and internalized well-being
