FREE TRAINING: GPS for Parents© -- Group Peer Support for Parents©
Wed, Jun 14, 2017, 9:00 AM – Fri, Jun 16, 2017, 4:30 PM EDT
“Parenting is a life-long journey and it’s easy to feel lost especially at times of transition and challenge. GPS for Parents© provides the map to help parents find their way.”
We all want to be the best parents that we can be, and we want the best for our children. However parenting is challenging -- new parents are overwhelmed, we face systemic societal barriers and life circumstances out of our control, and the daily grind of parenting can wear us down. It’s not easy. Parents deserve and need more support than they get.
GPS for Parents© is designed to support new parents, parents struggling with perinatal emotional complications, fathers, gender non-conforming parents, marginalized parents, parents in recovery, infant/child loss and parents who are parenting children who are struggling. Please ask if this model would be good for the parents whom you serve.
GPS for Parents© is an evidence-informed group model that will give you the map to support parents in your community. GPS for Parents© is an empowering group experience that provides a safe place for parents to address the challenges they face, hear from others on the path, gain perspective and strength, and chart a course through challenging times.
GPS for Parents© is based on over 15 years of model development by both Annette Cycon and Liz Friedman in their work as the co-founders of MotherWoman’s Postpartum Support Initiative and through their development of the MotherWoman Support Group Model. They are proud to introduce GPS for Parents© and offer a new innovative approach for all parents that addresses the multitude of challenges that parents face. As always, Liz and Annette provide an engaging, educational and innovative training experience.
This training is open to experienced and first time group leaders. Providers of services to ALL parents are invited to participate in this training. If 15 or more people in your community/region register, we will bring the training to you!
WHY IS THIS TRAINING FREE? GPS for Parents© is pleased to bring this innovative and accessible training to diverse communities. As we introduce this exciting new model we are interested in having input from diverse national partners. Please join us in providing critical support to parents when they need it the most.
Donations for this training will be accepted. All proceeds will go to GPS SUPPORT PARENTS FUND in your community to provide start-up funds for new and existing groups in your community.
