8-week Mindful Parenting
This evidence-based programme is developed by Professor Susan Bögels and Kathleen Restifo of the Netherlands. It places the practices and attitudes of mindfulness at the heart of parent-child interactions. Through everyday examples, we learn how to get unstuck from old patterns, and parent from a calmer, more compassionate and loving place. We practice how to listen with full attention, cultivate compassion, nonjudgmental acceptance and emotional awareness of self and child; and promote self-regulation in the parenting relationship.

This course is suitable for parents
- who are experiencing stress, especially suitable for parents of children with special education needs and/or psychological distress
- who would like to enhance their wellbeing
- with or without prior experience with mindfulness
