Upcoming Workshops + Events
Learn key strategies to deal with everyday parenting struggles and how to nurture your child’s developing mind. By applying new scientific discoveries to everyday parenting, parents can turn any outburst, argument, or fear into a chance to integrate their child’s brain. This interactive workshop teaches parents how to cultivate healthy emotional and intellectual development so that children can lead balanced and connected lives. You will learn ways to foster healthy brain development, leading to calmer, happier children. Discussion will focus on the “left and right brain” and the “upstairs brain” which makes decisions and balances emotions and is developing throughout childhood. With Therese Connolly, LCSW.
