Seleni Launches Workshops for Parents: Clues for Parents to Find Calm

New York, September 25 2018 – Emotional wellbeing is crucial for both parents and children, so they can lead happy healthy lives. The Seleni Institute created a series of workshops for individuals and couples who are journeying to parenthood as well as for current parents.

By understanding the role of stress and distress, parents can begin managing these emotions in order to be effective caregivers.  These skills will, in turn, be used to model effective ways to manage distress in children themselves.  Parenting can be very challenging at times, which is why these workshops will address specific concerns related to tantrums, children with special needs, major transitions and more.

Saturdays (once a month)

Time: 10:00 AM to 11:45 AM

Dates: beginning October 20th, 2018, ending May 5th, 2019.

Costs: $35/individual or $60/couple per session
