Mindfulness can support parents and families, providing parents with an opportunity to resource themselves and embedding skills, practices and attitudes valuable in parenting and throughout life. These include building self-compassion, increasing awareness and attunement to self and other, learning about stress and our reactions to it, and encouraging openness to change and growth. The group format fosters a sense of community and support.
The course runs over 9 weeks and the sessions are 2 hours long.
Elinor delivers the course with Dr Shani Langdon a clinical psychologist trained in Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
