Parenting Group - $125 (Includes GST)

Managing Through the Meltdowns Parent Group

What is a “meltdown” anyway? Do adults have meltdowns? What myths do we hold about our child’s meltdowns? Most of all, how can we hope to co-regulate our child into the “just right” state (where they can learn and grow), when we are just barely holding on ourselves?

What is a “meltdown” anyway? Do adults have meltdowns? What myths do we hold about our child’s meltdowns? Most of all, how can we hope to co-regulate our child into the “just right” state (where they can learn and grow), when we are just barely holding on ourselves?

Drawing strategies from Emotion Focused Family Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, and Mindful Self-Compassion, this is a two-evening parent group. 

In the first evening, you will learn an “emotion coaching” script, designed to help bring your child’s emotion elevator down from the penthouse … to the lobby – the door to reason and logic! You will also have an opportunity to reflect and uncover what gets in your way during these times. How can you manage yourself, when you are trying to help your child escape the grips of high emotions. Finally, you will walk away with a self-assessment worksheet that will help you better identify your parenting style, targeting any potential goals for your own change and growth.

Come back two weeks later, ready to share your experiences with emotion coaching your child. This evening will be much more interactive. What worked? What didn’t? Together, let’s celebrate your success, and workshop your struggles. Learning new ways of communicating takes practice. It might feel quite new to your child, as well as yourself. How can we help tweak your approach?
