Safe, Secure, and Loved: A Community-Led Approach to Strengthen Resiliency in Children, Families and Communities Using Mindfulness-Based Parent Education.
facilitated by Barbara Burns, PhD.
Safe, Secure and Loved is a mindfulness-based parenting program designed to strengthen family resilience. The program provides parents of young children (0-5 years) with information and skills to support sensitive parent-child attachment, stress management, and flexible cognitive skills in parents and children. What makes this program unique is that it is designed to be facilitated by community leaders, is trauma-informed, and has a strong emphasis on cultural strengths of resiliency. Cultural aspects of resilience combined with mindful parenting has great potential to transcend barriers that have limited the establishment of parenting as community-driven primary prevention work.
This workshop is designed for: professionals working with young children and families: Head Start/Early Head Start Centers; Nonprofits who Provide Parent Education; Private Practitioners; Faith-Based Institutions with Preschools; Community Medical Professionals and Pediatricians; Homeless Centers for Families; Libraries with Family Education Programs. This will be of particular interest to professional groups who utilize mindfulness-based interventions in parent and community education. The workshop will accommodate all levels of experience regarding this topic, ranging from beginner to advanced.
