A Two-Day Intensive Workshop
This two-day workshop is designed for infant mental health and early childhood specialists. Participants learn about Mindful Parenting Groups, an innovative, relationship-focused, development-driven approach to the prevention of psychopathology and child maltreatment in early childhood. These experiential groups bring together infants, toddlers or preschoolers, along with their parents, for the express purpose of promoting childhood attachment security through increasing parental reflective functioning. Qualified by the California Institute of Mental Health as a Community-Defined Evidence model for prevention and early intervention, Mindful Parenting Groups emphasize mindful observation, flexible responsiveness, and reflection as practices that enhance the quality of parent-child relationships. Level 1 Training is a prerequisite for participating in Level 2 Training (which includes participation as a facilitator-in-training in an 18-week Mindful Parenting Demonstration Group and concurrent weekly group supervision).
- Define reflective functioning and its relationship to enhancing secure attachment and preventing negative parental behavior
- Identify the strengths of Mindful Parenting Groups as a treatment model for developing secure parent-child relationships
- Demonstrate clinical understanding of the core components of Mindful Parenting Groups: mindful observation, flexible responsiveness, and reflection
