  • The role of mindfulness for parents and children

On the Saturday workshop, we'll cover:

  • The many benefits of therapeutic play, crying, active listening and quality connection.
  • Key concepts from Aletha Solter’s books: The Aware Baby, Helping Young Children Flourish, Tears and Tantrums, Attachment Play and Raising Drug Free Kids
  • Comparison of the different parenting styles; peaceful vs authoritarian vs permissive
  • 5 Principals to increase child's resilience to drugs, peer pressure, alcohol and self-harm
  • Building self-confidence, self-esteem and emotional intelligence in your child
  • Fostering self-esteem, resilience and emotional intelligence in your child
  • Prevention of and healing from stress and trauma
  • How to rebuild trust when children shut down
In these three workshops, Genevieve will share examples of putting these parenting skills into practice in challenging situations.  We'll talk about what to do when a child refuses to cooperate, when to problem solve and when to hold loving limits and other tricky challenges. 

These workshops will be beneficial for parents or professionals.  All three workshops will be helpful to those wishing to become Peaceful Parenting Instructors, especially if you intend to offer similar groups in the future.  However, the Saturday workshop accredits you with the 6 required workshop hours necessary for those wishing to become an Aware Parenting Instructor.*  These workshops offer a particularly valuable professional development opportunity for those working with children or families.  Certificates of attendance available on request. *

Genevieve is a Level II Aware Parenting Instructor, and as such is qualified to offer the 6 hours of Aware Parenting workshop hours to those wishing to gain their Aware Parenting Instructor certification with Aletha Solter’s Aware Parenting Institute (once all requirements are met).

Spaces are limited and these workshops can sell out fast, so get in early! Any questions please email
