Parent Workshop: Creating Healthy Family Dynamics

This workshop with Caroline Mendel, PsyD, will discuss how to create healthy family dynamics that support both typically developing children and those with special needs. Parents and caregivers will learn how sibling rivalry presents in families with children with special needs, and how to manage these dynamics to promote a positive and nurturing home environment.

Event Description



About the Series

The Parent Workshop Series is hosted by the Child Mind Institute and The Gillen Brewer School. These three talks are for families of preschool and school-aged children in the greater New York City region who are seeking information and strategies on parenting, children’s behavior and development, and learning support systems. The goal of this series is to help inform and inspire healthy dialogue about children’s mental health and learning disorders.


  • $25 per workshop covers two people — bring a friend along!
  • Refreshments, including wine and cheese, will be served.
  • You are not required to attend all three workshops
