About This Workshop

The parent-child relationship is the most powerful mental health intervention known to humankind.  – Bessel van der Kolk, MD 

Learning loss, undeveloped social-emotional skills, soaring anxiety, depression and self-harm are among the many issues our children are facing. Post-pandemic parenting is not for the faint of heart. While you are struggling to maintain your own wellbeing, meet work demands and care for your family at the same time, your kids are dealing with challenges that are more intense than we have ever imagined. Where do you start and what really matters?

The good and bad news is that your everyday interactions with your child have a powerful influence on their emotional wellbeing. But what kinds of interactions really make a difference? And why do they matter?

This workshop highlights the nature of stress as it relates to your children, the impact of family conflict, and the power of everyday connection and joy. Without recognizing that certain behaviors tell a story about your child’s unmet needs or the mismatch between our expectations and our kids’ capacities, it’s easy to miss important signs and symptoms. Sometimes we even make things worse in our efforts to remedy the problems. Let’s do this together.
