KnowHow in 2 hours

Know: Understand what happens in children’s brains, when they have a problem.  Learn how to engage and validate them, when they are having a ‘meltdown’.  Encourage personal responsibility by resisting your desire to fix or rescue them.  Maintain your help and support by being transparently real; and through offering the conditions of empathy and acceptance.  Know when to intervene, if they are struggling to move beyond the problem and find a solution.

How: Be still, present and patient so that you can hear the story and the feelings behind the story.  Be aware of what might get in the way of your listening (your stuff/agenda).   Use active listening skills to communicate and check your understanding.  Respond appropriately, so your child knows you are there to help without wanting to take over.  Help by guiding them through a problem solving process, if they are struggling to find a solution. 

Description

2 hours of Know How to help your family thrive

This is a person centred approach to parenting.  Being person centred means that empathy (a desire to understand from the person’s perspective), unconditional positive regard (accepting the person, with ‘no strings attached’) and congruence (you’re transparently real) is at the heart of all your communication.   If you provide this in your home, your relationships will repair, strengthen and sustain you throughout your life course.  Person centred relationships are evidenced as being the main drive behind psychologically healthy personality change.
This approach works with people of all ages, although the workshop focusess on the context of parent/child relationships.   This course is not about changing you or the values that you bring to your parenting.  It is about upholding what you believe is right and wrong and finding YOUR WAY to communicate with your children so that they can make better choices for themselves.
This workshop is for parents/carers of all verbal children. It is also for anyone working in a helping or supporting role for families.  This course can count towards 2 hours of your CPD.
