Our Mindfulness for Parents Course is evidence based and was
developed by Susan Bogels, a professor of Developmental
Psychopathology and Kathleen Restifo, a Clinical Psychologist and
It is a 10 week course pioneering a toolbag of mindfulness practices and parenting skills that support parents manage difficult emotions, stressful family situations and develop healthier relationships with those around them. We also run this course in two parts to make it more accessible for parents.
Through learning and practicing the techniques taught on our Mindfulness for Parents courses, you can learn how to:
Develop strong attachment bonds with your children.
Identify your emotions and be accepting of them.
Respond mindfully to each situation as it arises rather than react automatically.
Live in the moment through breath awareness and be more present for your children.
Discover that thoughts are not facts and so see situations in a new light therefore relating more appropriately to everyday stresses.
Nurture yourself through different mindfulness techniques that bring about better relaxation and better sleeping.
This course has Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction at the foundation and is grounded in scientific evidence to teach and support parents to develop stronger bonds with their children and take care of themselves better. Having gone through childbirth and all of the beauty, wonder, stress, exhaustion and chaos that this can bring, we sometimes miss the 'true nature' and joy of our children when they express themselves in different ways.
