This workshop is for parents who:
Want to learn more about what is happening a teen’s brain as it is maturing and preparing for adulthood.
Are interested in having their teen learn skills and practices that will help them to effectively weather-well: the normal up and down moods, challenging emotions, hurt feelings; and negative, in-their-head, self-talk.
Want to learn about tools that will help their teen respond to life challenges with self-kindness and care, rather than harsh self-criticism triggering their threat system.
Want to learn about skills that will help their teen bounce back more quickly when hard stuff happens to them or to someone they know and care about.
Want to learn more about the mindfulness for teens training program for young people between the ages of 12-15 and 16-19 years of age called Making Friends with Yourself (MFY).
Want to learn some Mindful Self-Compassion Parenting practices that will really help when their teen’s behaviour is in a downward spiral, and needs their parent’s calm the most.
