Relax and Connect:
For Expecting Parents and New Parents to help them thrive.
(90 minutes) – The most important focus of a new parent is to relax and connect. This is often hard to do when flooded with too much information and unwanted advice. Learn the most important things to thrive as a new parent and form a secure attachment with your child.
Bridging the Gap:
For parents whose children are transitioning to new situations.
(2 hours) – Learn how to maintain a strong connection with your child when you must be away from them while they are at daycare, school, or with a nanny.
Fostering language development and communication skills in young children.
(2 hours) – Parents do teach their children how to speak. Learn baby-sign language, how to foster language development, and how to have strong communication with your young child.
Discipline with Care:
Keeping your cool during challenging times.
(2 hours) – When emotions run high, it can be hard to support a child through a tantrum. Learn how to coach your child through difficult moments and also how to calm yourself down during these often challenging times.
“You’re Not the Boss of Me!”:
Building confidence, consistency, and connection in your role as parent.
(2 hours) – Are you the pack leader of your family? Learn how to become more confident as a parent: be an “alpha” presence, talk to your children with care and consistency, understand “counterwill” and how it affects your daily interaction, and create unity in your family by leading them through challenges.
“Watch your Language”
Using words to provide a secure base for children and teens.
(1 hour) – Geared specifically to school teachers, this presentation explains four important ways we can improve how we speak to children and teens, and how we can effectively coach young people to limit their use of inappropriate language. The techniques and tools shared will help teachers create a safe learning environment and build resiliency in the young people in their care.
“Break it to them Gently”
Communicating with patients in a way that promotes resiliency.
(1 hour) – This presentation is geared to health practitioners and it covers ways to present very difficult health care realities to patients in ways that encourage the patient towards resiliency and empowerment.
