Si nous voulons influencer leur comportement, nous devons d’abord établir un lien avec eux et avec leurs émotions. Cet atelier vous montrera des moyens d’entrer en connexion avec le cerveau émotionnel des enfants afin de les aider à faire de meilleurs choix. En même temps, ils apprendront à comprendre leurs propres émotions et celles des autres.

Parent/caregiver training

be brave * be kind * be present

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.

For Fathers

Fathering after Separation and Divorce Peer Support Group

How can I be a good father following separation or divorce?

Schedule:

Bi-weekly Wednesdays 6-7 pm

Next meetings: September 13th, 27th, October 11th, 25th

Fee/costs:

Free

Program Description:

Our fathering program is tailored to fathers who have gone through, or who are going through a separation or divorce. This group meets on a bi-weekly basis to discuss issues relating to single parenting, how to be a good father, how to overcome partner separation with the interests of children in mind. The goal of the program is to share experiences in a safe environment and discuss positive approaches to fathering. It is important that participants are respectful of each other and behave appropriately during meetings. Throughout this program participants will:

  • Better understand what their child is going through and the changes they will experience
  • Learn conflict resolution, team work, communication and co-parenting skills
  • Learn how to deal with and report child abuse
  • Learn how to take care of their emotional and physical health and well-being
  • Connect to other father’s groups, social service agencies, lawyers and medical professionals
  • Hear from special experts and guests who will join us occasionally

As this is a peer support group, participants will not receive therapy, counselling or legal advice and should seek elsewhere for these supports if needed.

Meetings will take place at the Canadian Centre for Men and Families in Ottawa located at 292 Montreal Rd, Suite 302. This program will be facilitated by Don Osborne.

 

As meeting space is limited we would appreciate it if you would RSVP at ottawa@menandfamilies.org or by calling 613-518-1065
