The introductory course can be held over one or two evenings. The Connected Parenting series can be adapted for both parents and teachers.
Connected Parenting Advanced Strategies
This workshop is for parents and teachers who have attended the introductory course. It will focus on mastery of the various techniques emphasizing use of self and fluency, as well as the speed and ease of these communication skills.
Parenting with Brains
Parenting strategies that help your child’s brain functioning
Developmental experiences have a profound impact on how a mature brain functions. The more pleasant experiences a child’s brain has, the more the brain specializes for positive emotion-meaning that later in life he or she may cope better with stress, become more resilient, and be more positive in general. This means that parents have the ability to affect their child’s brain function.
As a parent, you want to do everything possible to give your child the tools for a successful life. But what if a few small adjustments in how you interact with your child could actually impact their brain function?
It is not enough just to love them, investing in your relationship with your child will have an effect on their future success and happiness.
