Repeating, Rebelling or Repairing: Facilitator: Karen Blumenfeld

  • How your own experience of being a child in your family of origin is influencing your parenting style now.
  • Working through the muddle of what to keep and what to give up from your own past and how that can help your.
  • Making the distinction between your feelings and those of your child.
  • Learning options to change less helpful parenting patterns that will be helpful to you and your child.
  • Accepting yourself as a 'good enough' parent or therapist - nothing more and nothing less!
  • If you are child psychotherapist or counsellor, you will gain a greater understand of your own counter-transference when working with children or teenagers with children.
  • Understanding notions of emotional overprotectiveness, neglect and abandonment even when we seem to be doing all the right things!

This workshop is mixture of theory, discussion and experiential work. It's fun, informative, deep and I have had excellent feedback whenever I have had presented this material.

Throughout the year we also run workshops on Effective Parenting with
