Join Us! The Heart and Work of Parenting (for parents and caregivers)
Raising children is both amazing and challenging. Take some time for yourself and have fun while you learn new information on parent-child attachment, emotion, discipline, and healing in the family. This training teaches a unique approach to parenting which brings together the science of emotional development, attachment, and neurobiology with practical ways to nurture healthy growth, decrease destructive patterns, and increase positive family connection. The class material will span all ages of childhood with particular focus on ages 0-12 years. (Although there are no CE certificates for this class, signed receipts can be used as proof of attendance.)
