We are excited to offer our next Patchwork Communication Workshops in a weekly format! This gives participants the opportunity to go more deeply into each concept, experiment during the week with children and then follow up the next week with the group. Your Parent Education Fee covers these workshops! The cost is only $50 for others. RSVP to repeat workshops you have taken already as well (if there is space).
Past participants have enjoyed these opportunities together to share experiences with child development, care and problem solving. The time to focus on respectful communication that builds relationship is enriching and inspiring. The input from parents and the repetition of the same universal loving concerns and problems is both jarring and comforting. There is tremendous value in outlining our Patchwork Communication Skills and putting all of our tools together so that we can be consistent in our efforts. The latest research in interpersonal neurobiology is a powerful aid, helping us to shift out of our frustrations toward finding compassion, for our own difficulties and those of our relations! The research is a driving force in motivating the extra effort up front, to be firm but fair, with the goal of positive outcomes in adolescents and beyond. We are a community where all members are resource to each other.
Please RSVP for Part One, Part Two or both to Info@thepatchworkschool.com
