Mindful Parents, Resilient Children
|To be announced|
This clinical module will describe a practice oriented group treatment program that teaches Mindful parenting. Mindful parenting is intended to enhance parental presence, increase attunement, and reduce parental stress and reactivity. This treatment program aims to improve emotional stability in parents, thereby providing them with a choice about how to navigate the unique challenges of raising a child with social and emotional difficulties.
Through direct practice, conceptual teaching and discussions, participants will gain an understanding of the principles and practices of teaching Mindful parenting in a clinical setting. Adaptations will be made for participants who will be working with parents in an individual or family setting. A clinical background is recommended for this module.
