Stress Management and Self Compassion For Parents

Parenting is a big part of our lives and identities. It gives us love, meaning, and purpose in life. It also entails asking ourselves many questions about ourselves, our values, our children’s happiness. We also have a self view as a parent that includes our beliefs about our parenting skills and our ability to overcome obstacles in parenting and in life in general.

This year of 2020 presented us with new challenges, struggles and has the potential to bring some doubts about our parenting and our coping abilities. This year instead of just continue our habitual ways of dealing with stress, parenting and health related challenges, it is more important than ever to stop and reassess  To help our children cope, grow and have strong values we first have to take care of ourselves, our ability to manage situations, stress and self care.

This presentation is a way to pause and learn new information on stress management and self compassion. I hope that parents will have new ideas of how to take care of themselves, so they will have a calming presence in their children’s lives. I believe that this presentation can motivate parents to continue learning new ways of being and to be kind to themselves! Register here.

A few years back, she moved to California and completed her postdoctoral internship in a community mental health clinic. Her approach is reflected in the presentation. She believe that living in the highly competitive environment of the San Francisco Bay Area disrupts people’s life balance by emphasizing work and achievements over other important aspects of life. This is why she believes in treating the person as a whole, which includes encouraging people to reach balance in life, through self care, exercise, healthy living, and mindfulness.
