About the event
Big Feelings can overhwhelm and hijack our children and ourselves. In those moments we need understading of our autonomic nervous system and tools to help ourselves regulate and then be able to co regulate with our children, no matter their age. We will be talking about how the nervous system operates, how we can support ourselves as parents and support our children. We will be talking about how we can create space for our feelings and for our children's and create a family culture where all feelings are welcome. We will be reframing how we see our children's behaviours. We will talk about rupture in our relationships and the importance and power of repair as one of the most profound parenting tools. We will talk about Self Compassion and how we access the power of our thougths to calm and support our nervous system. We are all designed to seek safety, consciously and unconsciously. This workshop will highlight what it can look like, sound like and feel like when we, or our children, do not feel safe.
