Parent Workshop: Raising Self-Sufficient Children

Join Stephanie Lee, PsyD, for a discussion about strategies for fostering independence and positive self-care for typically developing children and those with special needs. We will review major developmental tasks and challenges and provide parents with frameworks for problem-solving and shaping behavior. Parents will learn how to effectively promote social and emotional resilience, mindfulness, and pro-social behaviors in their children and themselves.

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
