PARENTING & ATTACHMENT

  • Do you know that a lot of those feelings and your capacity to strive as a parent are determined by your attachment style?
  • Tired of reading books and practicing techniques that sometimes work and sometimes don’t?
  • Still confused about what type of parent you want to be? Too strict, too flexible, and can’t figure things out?
  • Do you know that that the most efficient way to be a good parent is by working on yourself? Yes, now you can predict your child’s secure attachment (meaning happier and more meaningful future with 85% accuracy by working on your own attachment style?

We know that the first months when a baby comes are hard and a big adjustment.  But what happens after those first months and years pass? Do you feel that things are better now? That your expectations about the child and yourself were met? The journey to figure out your role as a parent, your interactions, and type of parent you are and want to be aren’t easy. The surprise is also that most of all of that is driven by unconscious dynamics: mostly our own attachment. So by exploring and understanding our own style we could improve and have a satisfactory relationship with our children and with ourselves. No more guilt, confusion and everyday questioning. It is exhausting! Now with 85% accuracy we can predict a good future for our children and that of our relationship with them.

In this group we won’t be focusing mainly on the children and behavioral techniques but on ourselves and our internal processes, reactions and pasts to see how they influence the present and therefore, improve them. Based on Dr. Daniel Siegel’s work (Mindsight, Interpersonal Neurobiology and Parenting from the Inside Out).

WHO: Mothers, fathers, teachers and educators of all ages.

Because the attachment style is flexible you can influence your children’s attachment and yours anytime.

DATE & TIME: TBD

DURATION: 90 minutes

COST: $85 per session (might be reimbursable by insurance).

Why a group format?

Lots of the isolation most mothers live today in aggravates the situation, so a big part of the solution is to create that community (“the village”) that we all talk about but that due to modern life is less and less available.
