Reflective Parenting: Holding Parent & Child in Relationship

February 21 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Training Description: Parenting is about growing humans, ideally into well-minded, balanced, healthy, and happy individuals.  Many parents work tirelessly in supporting children in mind, body, spirit, and soul into reaching their fullest potential in life.  But why does parenting transform a well-intended, typically logical, and even-tempered adult into a screaming banshee?   As clinicians, we have many tools to respond to parenting support but too often, the patterns seem immovable and reoccurring.  Reflective Parenting offers a supportive parenting model based on Peter Fonagy’s concept of reflective functioning that allows for deep shifts to occur.  Integrating key concepts such as mentalization, attachment theory, mindfulness, intergenerational resiliency and trauma, Reflective Parenting holds the tension of both the parent and child as individuals who have their own deep inner experiences and the dynamic between their intertwined worlds.
