Mindful Parenting Brooklyn

Mindful Parenting Workshops

MPB offers a variety of workshops that we tailor to fit the needs of participants. Workshops are designed to help parents use mindfulness and attunement to strengthen family relationships, reduce conflict, and improve communication. Recent presentations include workshops for parents at the Trilok School and the Berkeley-Carroll School and for graduate students at the New York University School of Social Work.

We synthesize current neurobiology research relevant to child development and parenting and translate it so non-scientist parents can understand and use this knowledge.

Our workshops are experiential, so participants can learn not just by listening but through doing and sensing.

Parents: Contact us to schedule a private workshop for a small group.

Family doctors, pediatricians, OB/GYNs, midwives, doulas, and other health and wellness professionals: Give us a call to discuss offering a workshop (or series of workshops) to your clients.

Educators: Call us to discuss school-based workshops for parents and teachers.

Mindful Parenting Brooklyn offers workshops on a range of topics through a mindfulness lens. We would be glad to create curricula covering other topics to correspond with the needs of specific parents.
