This two-day workshop prepares participants to implement Personal Best groups with parents and caregivers of young children. The program helps parents manage stress, reach goals, understand their children, and improve relationship, problem solving, and communication skills. The goal is for parents to become resilient, self-aware, and engage in positive interactions with their child.
- To promote adult well-being by increasing the parent’s confidence, social support, and executive function skills
- To identify stress triggers, responses, and effective coping strategies
- To be reflective about child temperament and parenting beliefs that inform parenting practices
