A One Day Workshop with Dominic Cogan
Mindful Parent-Mindful Child: Research suggests that there is a strong correlation between mindfulness traits within parents and their child’s ability to internalize and externalize their experiences positively. In short, the more mindful a parent is, the easier their child will find navigating stress, anxiety and difficult emotions, not only making parenting easier, but allowing the parent/child relationship to flourish.
At the Sanctuary we run a series of courses for parents, offering them the chance to experience an introduction to mindfulness and mindful parenting. Mindful Parent- Mindful Child is a one day workshop, delivered by Dominic Cogan of RTE fame, and is:
-designed for parents and guardians of children ages 4-12
-supports both parent and child in reducing stress
-handouts to take way with tips and resources
-variety of teaching facilitation methods
Topics will include:
-using mindfulness techniques to respond rather than react
-supporting the anxious child in worrying less
-cooling down strategies when anger and frustration appears
-helping your child build a healthy sense of self-worth and confidence
When: Saturday, May 18th from 1oam- 4:30pm
