Workshop Title: Parenting as a Spiritual Practice: An Innovative Model for Empowering Parent, Child and Their Relationship

Workshop Description: 

Countless researchers show that a nurturing bond between a child and their parents minimizes the likelihood of negative outcomes such as delinquency and substance use.  However, multigenerational cycles of pain, blame, shame, and rejection continue as many well-intentioned parents struggle to implement what was not adequately modeled for them.  Foundational principles such as self-awareness, shared by most spiritual practices offer valuable insights and tools to help parents shift out of unhelpful cycles and into empowering family relationships. Attendees will learn how to empower families by integrating key components of spiritual practices with an innovative parenting model created by the presenter.

Learning Objectives

  1. Participants will be able to discuss the varied manifestations and effects of pain, blame, shame, and avoidance on the parent-child relationship.
  2. Participants will be able to describe ways that parents can use common dimensions of many spiritual practices to deepen their connection with their children.
  3. Participants will be able to apply an innovative parenting model that uses imagery and neuroscience to common parenting cases.
