For *girls ages 9-15 and a trusted adult (*Nonbinary individuals are also welcome. If you have any concerns with the gender identity of your child and whether they’d fit in, please reach out to discuss).
8 weekly classes on Mondays 6 to 7 pm starting September 19
Led by Sarah Saffold, MSW, LMSW and Kathleen McKee, therapists at The Center for Mindfulness & CBT
Course content includes mindfulness practices to build awareness, emotional regulation, and self-compassion, communication skills that will be practiced between the two of you and will be applicable in all relationships, and other techniques to help you and your daughter thrive during the pandemic and beyond.
Classes will be taught live via GoToMeetings (similar to Zoom) and will be highly participatory, but if you have to miss a class you can ask to have it recorded to watch later.
Each week there will be brief mindfulness practices to complete in between the sessions, as well as topics for discussion between you and your daughter/child.
The cost for each hour-long class is $40 for both you and your daughter/child.
Space is limited to just 8 pairs, so register now to secure your spot.
This course is for you if:
You would like to learn ways to help your daughter/child regulate strong emotions or emotional reactions.
You are worried about the amount of screen time your daughter is absorbing with more virtual activities and classes during the pandemic.
You want her to feel self-confident and happy, but you aren’t sure how to help her get there.
You are so busy that there isn’t a lot of time for connection, and when you are together you both often end up feeling frustrated and misunderstood.
It’s the best way to get you and your daughter/child to:
Learn techniques to identify where emotions are felt in your bodies, thus giving you time to slow down your emotions so that you can think through responses before reacting.
Feeling balanced and at peace with yourselves and each other.
Knowing that you each have the tools to handle any challenge that you face on your own, but that you are stronger together.
A place of closeness and connection that you haven’t felt in a while with intentional time that you enjoy spending together regularly.
