Mindful Parenting Program

About the Program

The Mindful Parenting Program is a research-based program developed by Susan Bögels and Kathleen Restifo and endorsed by Mark Williams, Christopher Germer and Jon and Myla Kabat-Zinn. Participants will explore themes such as parenting on “automatic pilot,” beginner’s mind parenting, responding vs. reacting to parenting stress, conflict and parenting, and love and limits. In addition, topics of self-compassion, vulnerability and wholeheartedness will be presented. Participants in the program will practice new ways of being present during joyful as well as stressful parenting moments. Mindful parenting is an approach to parenting that can allow for deeper connections with our children, creating a more peaceful, healthier and happier relationships.
