Inspired Parenting – Parenting from an Attachment/Trauma Perspective
August 16 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
JOIN DAFNA LENDER FOR A FREE MONTHLY SERIES
Join us to pause, ground yourself, and focus on taking constructive action.
Parenthood often brings otherwise competent people to their knees as they try to deal with the frustrating behaviors or strained relationship with their child. There is nothing more painful than feeling resentful, hopeless, helpless or depressed when it comes to your parent identity. Perhaps you have already read many parenting books and vowed that you would not react negatively towards your child. Or maybe your teenager is painfully rejecting you and you vacillate between trying your hardest to be kind and crying or screaming, making things even worse. Or perhaps you feel like your child is ruining your life as he behaves in a destructive or dangerous manner and you feel frightened or out of control.
In these instances, it is helpful to take time to look at the dynamics from an attachment and trauma perspective. From these perspectives, you can find new insights and techniques that will help to understand yourself and your child better, so that you can have a more peaceful and connected relationship.
This program is open to all people who interact with children whether that’s being a parent, guardian, or working with them in your professional career.
This session will address how to validate a child’s feelings.
