Parenting with Presence Class – Winter 2017
This series of classes will be a book study of Dr. Dan Siegel’s Parenting From the Inside Out.
How many parents have found themselves thinking: “I can’t believe I just said to my child the very thing my parents used to say to me! Am I just destined to repeat the mistakes of my parents?””
In this class we will investigate how our childhood experiences shape how we parent and relate to our children. Using the book as a guide, we will explore the current research in neurobiology and attachment and discover the extent to which our interpersonal relationships affect the development of a child’s brain. We will also learn a parenting approach that helps us raise healthy, balanced and resilient children by forming a deeper understanding of our own life stories.
“How we come to make sense of our lives, how we tell a coherent story of our early experiences, is the best predictor of how our children will become attached to us. Enabling our children to build a secure attachment lays a foundation for their future healthy development.” – Daniel J. Siegel, M.D.
We will review one chapter per class, work on and discuss the inside out exercises, and delve into other topics that come up. The class will be a fun and creative mix of the experiential, practical and conceptual material in the book as well as my own experience with the topics.
