Reflective Parenting Program (RPP) is an innovative workshop series that engages groups of  parents in an in-depth experiential learning process.

Reflective Parenting Program is an innovative and experiential 12-week workshop designed to enhance critical parenting skills, most notably the capacity to make meaning out of a child’s behavior.   RPP utilizes a reflective learning process, in a group setting, to help parents address everyday challenges with their child.  A group consists of 6-10 parents with specific curriculums for children of all ages (early childhood, elementary school age, and adolescence), as well as a prenatal program for expectant parents. Each weekly workshop includes instruction, discussions, and exercises to help parents reflect on topics such as:

  • Temperament
  • Responding to Children’s Emotions
  • Separation and the Development of Independence
  • Play and Parental Involvement
  • Discipline
  • Emotional Life of the Parent

Specific topics are introduced in order to stimulate discussion and, most notably, reflection about the relevant issues in a family.  Workshops enable parents to discover new ways to think about the links between behavior, feelings, and actions, while learning new strategies and techniques designed to enhance their reflective functioning. Parents will begin to recognize how their capacity for reflection can serve as a powerful tool toward building stronger and more satisfying relationships, as well as to reduce emotional discord and maladaptive behavior in the child.
