Event details

Mindfulness in Parenting:

Creating More "Best Parenting Moments"

presented by Liliana Lengua, Ph.D.


Workshop Description

Dr. Liliana Lengua, Child Psychologist, Psychology Professor and Director of the Center for Child and Family Well-Being will lead this training on evidence-based mindful parenting, including tools for bringing mindfulness into your everyday interactions with your child. 


Using best practices in parenting is challenging for most parents, particularly when families are experiencing stress or disruptions from economic or work challenges, family conflict, mental health issues, divorce, bereavement, or other stressful life circumstances, or when dealing with temperamentally challenging children. Parents who can adopt mindfulness practices might be better able to engage in effective parenting and positive interactions with their children. Dr. Lengua will interweave mindfulness practices with best parenting practices that can be used in every-day interactions between parents and children to enhance parents’ effectiveness and satisfaction in interacting with their children.


Learning Objectives:

-       Understand best parenting practices of warmth, responsiveness and consistency

-       Use mindfulness practices to increase use of best parenting practices

-       Use mindfulness practices to be present, calm and wise-minded

-       Combine specific parenting and mindfulness practices when interacting with children.
