We are thrilled to host Brooke Heppner, Marriage and Family Therapist to share on the important topic of healthy attachment. Families need to build healthy attachment while establishing boundaries for their children. This event is targeted for families birth to fifth grade, although the information will be useful for all ages.
HEALTHY ATTACHMENT is a very broad term that reflects the emotional, social, mental, and physical interactions between two people. This parent training event is going to focus on equipping parents to build healthy attachment and boundaries with their children.
These are the three general areas of equipping:
- Understanding the child’s brain and age development
- Understanding an adult's previous experiences with attachment
- Developing healthy boundaries which provide safety and room for growth
This event is targeted at general behaviors in both adults and kids. If you can relate to any of the following scenarios, this parent training could be a good tool for you.
- Your child is throwing a tantrum or is a highly emotional child.
- Drop off for school, playdates, sleepovers or camp causes both parent and child anxiety.
- The constant need of a parent to shield or protect a child from hurt, loss of friendship, or moments of failure.
- A parent who needs to solve or fix things for their child.
Our children do not arrive on the scene with a full color, extensive user guide. As parents it is important to learn and develop useful tools to help the relationships in our home flourish. We hope you will attend and bring a friend. Sharing these opportunities in a community of parents is a wonderful learning place. There will not be childcare for this event.
