Infusing Everyday Parenting Moments with Mindfulness:

A Workshop for Parents 

Liliana Lengua, Ph.D.

Saturday, March 24, 2018
9:00 AM – 3:00 PM


Dr. Liliana Lengua, Child Psychologist, Psychology Professor and Director of the Center for Child and Family Well-Being will lead this 1-day training on evidence-based mindful parenting, including tools for bringing mindfulness into your everyday interactions with your child.

As parents, we strive to draw upon the most effective parenting strategies for our children. Even when we know the best practices, it can be challenging to use them consistently – particularly if there are economic or work challenges, family conflict, mental health issues, divorce, death, or other stressful life circumstances.

Incorporating mindfulness practices into parenting strategies can help parents have more positive interactions with their children. In this workshop, Dr. Lengua will interweave mindfulness with best parenting practices that can be used in every-day interactions between parents and children to enhance parents’ effectiveness and relationships with their children.

This workshop will provide you with tools and inspiration to make your parenting even more effective by tailoring your approach to your child’s personality. Additional learning objectives include:

Learn best parenting practices of warmth, consistency, and scaffolding

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.
