One of the biggest challenge’s a parent can face is managing difficult or defiant behaviour on the part of children. Whether they’re refusing to put on their shoes or throwing full-blown tantrums, you can find yourself at a loss for an effective way to respond (after all we are all human!!!)
For parents at their wit's end, behavioural therapy techniques can provide a road map to calmer, more consistent ways to manage problem behaviours and offer a chance to help children develop gain the developmental skills they need to regulate their own behaviours.
These sessions will explore these techniques and how mindfulness parenting can produce fewer negative emotions and more shared positive emotion with their children in difficult conversations.
We know some people may be hesitant to attend these sessions because of social stigma that if you ask for help “you are failing as a parent”, but in all honesty most of us are just winging it!! The aim of these workshop sessions is to learn, share and support each other through what is probably one of the hardest jobs on the planet – being a parent!
A 6-hour CPD certificate will be awarded on completion.
