Parenting With the Whole Brain Workshop
This practical workshop is designed for parents of children ages 3-12 and is based on the renowned work of child psychiatrist Dr. Dan Siegel, and his book The Whole Brain Child, co-authored by parenting expert Tina Bryson.
In this workshop, you will learn the value of understanding basic brain function so you can recognize when the amygdala has “hijacked the mind”. We go through the science behind what is happening when your 2, 5, 7, 9 or 11 year old is having a melt down, and demystify what is going on in your child’s brain. Coupled with Dr. Siegel’s trademark easy-to-understand-style promoting the importance of left and right brain integration, Nicole interweaves anecdotal practical information about cases she has dealt with, and how these families have experienced success.
You will also leave equipped with strategies to help raise happier, healthier children who are more peaceful and friendly to be around, as well as gain an understanding and appreciation for maintaining your own optimal mental health.
