Regaining Balance: Mindfulness Skills for Parents in Transition

Printer-friendly version

Ruth Jaeger, LCSW and Liz Salin, MFT are very excited to announce the start of a 6 week class in San Rafael, CA for parents who are experiencing a separation or divorce. The class will focus on teaching participants to use mindfulness meditation skills to regulate the inevitable stress and dysregulation of this transitional phase. Our program is inspired by Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) classes which have demonstrated that these skills can be learned in a short term format. Outcome studies have shown mindfulness skills to be effective in reducing symptoms of stress, anxiety, and depression.
As documented in research studying outcomes of children of divorce, sensitive caregiving is the cornerstone of a secure attachment and secure attachment correlates with resilience in children. Parents will learn and practice skills which will facilitate their ability to regain a sense of emotional stability. Emotional regulation is essential for personal well-being and good parenting during this upsetting time.

We are offering a free orientation Thursday, September 29. The classes will begin the following Thursday, October 6. This class will be offered in the winter and spring.
Please feel free to e-mail or phone us with any questions you, have including about the classes’ suitability for your clients.
