A Special 12-Week Workshop for Parents of kids 4-10 years old.
Reflective Parenting focuses on the challenging issues of Temperament, Limit Setting, Discipline, and Emotional Regulation and helps parents look through the lens of better understanding the feelings and intentions that underlie all behaviors in people- most especially in their child and in themselves. This way of understanding is called Reflective Capacity and it lies at the heart of effective parenting, strengthens the parent-child relationship, and supports healthy cognitive and social-emotional development.
Tuesdays from 9:30-11 am starting mid-March 2021
The group is led by two seasoned therapists and Reflective Parenting experts, Annie Wilson, M.S, L.C.S.W., and Deborah Alexander, L.C.S.W.
