BUILDING COMPASSION RESILIENCE
As parents and caregivers, we have a desire to lessen barriers for our children and ourselves, and the pain that they cause. Compassion resilience is the power to return to a position of empathy, strength, and hope after the daily experience of the challenges our children face and those we face as their parents.The goal of this workshop is for us to build our compassion resilience, for the long haul, as we face the multiple challenges of parenting.
COMPASSION IN ACTION
In this workshop we will look at how to act with compassion in response to a someone’s distress. It turns out that coming from a mindset of compassion greatly adds to our ability to parent and our own life satisfaction. We will discuss what compassion looks like in action, how that applies to our lives and ways to regulate our and our children’s emotions.
As we face the complex reality of parenting, our ability to maintain an open and compassionate approach to our children can be challenged. Compassion fatigue can develop slowly overtime and go unrecognized. This workshop will give you insights that can guide you to avoid or stop compassion fatigue as early as possible.
LOCUS OF CONTROL
Our families are imperfect systems made up of imperfect people. When we look outside of our own family to those that we rely on to provide for our health and well-being, we find more imperfection. In this workshop we will focus on the factors that can negatively impact our compassion resilience and explore our response and potential role in making positive change.
