Mindful Parenting from the Perinatal Period through Early Childhood:

A Workshop for Professionals and Parents

Facilitated by: Larissa Duncan, Ph.D.


Saturday, September 8, 2018

9:00 AM – 12:00 PM

 Workshop Details

This presentation will provide an overview of mindful parenting, which is an approach to bringing principles and practices of mindfulness, compassion, self-compassion, and lovingkindess into everyday parenting interactions. In particular, we will focus on how to set the stage for mindful parenting by beginning these practices during pregnancy, and integrating them throughout childbirth, infancy, and early childhood. We will discuss barriers and supports to practicing mindfulness and mindful parenting and cover some of the empirical evidence about the benefits of programs to support these qualities in the perinatal period and during parent-child interactions.  The session will include strategies for professionals and parents/caregivers to use to support attentive, caring, calm family relationships.  Together, we will engage in experiential practices from mindfulness, mindful parenting, and mindful self-compassion programs.


At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to:  

1)Describe the dimensions of mindful parenting as commonly taught and measured. 

2)Describe the benefits of mindfulness training during pregnancy..


3)Identify at least two core mindful parenting practices (e.g., self-compassion in parenting, lovingkindess for oneself as a parent/caregiver and for one’s child).


Workshop fee:  $50.00, which includes a Certificate of Completion for 3 hours for licensed psychologistsmarriage and family therapistsmental health counselors, and social workers in Washington State.
