Giving the Love That Heals: Becoming the Parent You Wish You Had Had?
Saturday February 12 | 12pm - 1:45pm EST
It may be an uncomfortable fact, but without an epiphany, we parent our children the way we were parented. We said we never would, and we are shocked to discover we have! And our children are witnesses. In this session we describe Conscious Parenting as an art form supported by relational science, demonstrate and ask you to practice the parenting skill your parents did not have, and guide you to experience parenting as a joyful privilege.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able:
1. Describe the core features of Conscious Parenting.
2. Describe the core skill of Conscious Parenting.
3. Practice the Imago Dialogue Process with your children and spouse.
4. Discuss the concept of Relational Competence and how to acquire it.
