At the same time, they’ll be learning to  understand their own emotions and those of other people.

Parent/caregiver training

MBSR - Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, therapeutic Program

How can Mindfulness help me?:

The Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction program was designed to change the relationship we have with suffering: pain, stress, as well as challenging thoughts and emotions. After years of research and practice, we have found that this 8 week MBSR program significantly improves participants' wellness, sense of balance, emotional self-regulation and relationship to negative thoughts, feelings and pain sensations.

 

Why is it so effective?:

The MBSR program teaches mindfulness through practice. We explore and practice Mindful Parenting techniques, meditation, mindful movement and stress management in a safe and small group environment. This is reinforced through daily homework. This intensive program has the potential to help you respond, rather than react to life's parenting stresses and struggles.

 

What to expect:

Over the course of 8 weeks, we explore:

 

  • Your relationship with anger, stress, suffering and pain. 
  • The practice of being aware of the present moment with a kind, open and curious attitude (one definition of Mindfulness).
  • Meditation (how to meditate (sitting and walking) and bring the practice of calmness and reflection into your daily life) 
  • Mindful moving (learning how to reconnect the mind and body through movement) Mindful parenting resources (books, games, tools, etc).

 

 

Weekly Schedule:

Week 1: Introduction to mindfulness and mindfulness-based skills - awareness and presence 

 

Week 2: Role of perception in shaping our reality, learning to be with ALL experiences. 

 

Week 3: Being vs doing mode

 

Week 4: Stress and stress reactivity - awareness of parenting patterns

 

Week 5. Responding to stress vs reacting to stress


Week 6: Challenging communication with our kids, partners and colleagues Week 7: Bringing what we are learning into action!
 

Week 8: Keeping mindfulness alive in our day to day life.

When your child has a temper tantrum, stay calm and speak in a very quiet voice. Children sometimes stop the tantrum to hear what's being said.
