COMPASSIONATE PARENTING: RAISING CHILDREN W/NONVIOLENCE
A 12 - 20 week Parent Education course supports parents in
developing or deepening a practice of self-regulation, of raising their children with nonviolence, prioritizing connected relationships and optimal development. Parents will be introduced to concepts of brain and child development, regulation and wellness, trauma-informed practices, emotional intelligence, empathy, connected communication, introspection and reflection and more.
This series invites parents to actively & physically engage in learning the skills and tools to support the development of strong, connected relationships with their children as well as explore what they need in order to implement them.
Our parenting sessions are guided by the curriculum "A Compassionate Guide to Raising Children with Nonviolence" and "Principles and Practices of Parenting with Nonviolence Coursebook for Parents and Caregivers" written by Ruth Beaglehole with Kim Pesenti.
