Mindful Parenting Workshop

Tuesday, December 11, 2018

6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Manhattan Youth Downtown Center

This parent workshop is hosted by the Hudson River Park Mothers Group (HRP Mamas), a social and support group for mothers who reside in Lower Manhattan.

Please join Dr. Stephanie Samar for a workshop on how to bring mindfulness into your home. Dr. Samar will provide advice on how to implement mindfulness techniques and teach them to your children. She will also help parents recognize the different ways that kids act when they're feeling anxious, and how parents can respond in a calming and helpful way.

Parents will learn skills to help children stay calm in stressful situations, block out distractions and live in the moment, as well as how to recognize when children may need extra support. You will engage in easy-to-follow mindfulness exercises and have the opportunity to ask questions on the topic.

Adults caring for children often have questions about how to set clear expectations and manage behavior effectively. Especially when children exhibit challenging behaviors, adults want to know exactly how to address these situations with strategies that promote positive behavior, good social-emotional development, and increased self-esteem. The Child Mind Institute's B.E.S.T. Program (Behavioral and Emotional Skills Training for parents, nannies, and caregivers) provides just this sort of preparation. Informed by the most up-to-date research, clinicians provide adults with a structured training experience aimed at the teaching and immediate application of practical techniques for effective behavior management.
