We have a number of workshops that may be of interest. If there is enough interest in certain workshops we will make it into a weekly group.
Please Joint Us Weekly for the Studio City Mindful Mommy and Me ongoing weekly.
Beginning Oct. 11, 2017 at 11:00
Mindful Mommy and Me presents a time to celebrate and experience the wonderful bonds we have with our children. A time to rid ourselves of stress and focus and learn about our children as we play. Mindful parenting allows children to gain a secure foundation that lasts a lifetime. Join us to create delightful community of like-minded parents!
The mission of the group is to work with parents and kids to develop secure attachments though activities. New research over the last ten years, pioneered by Dr. Daniel Siegel MD. psychiatry professor and researcher at UCLA shows how the infant brain reacts to a parent who is present and attuned to their needs. Children who develop this secure attachment develop a strong foundation for life and future relationships. The group will include information about mindfulness and attachment as well as give parents a chance to play with their children and have a mutual satisfying relationship. Some group times will be in my office and others will be out in the community. There will be a charge of 25.00 per session.
For those who are interested, a therapy group for artist will also be available. This group will be for artist who want to go deeper within themselves to increase the depth of the art. Also the group will examine deeply issues that obstruct artist from going forward in their passions.
Workshops are hopeful for the participant. They are usually a subject of interest of the participant. Workshops often involve participation of the attendees. There can be creative exercises to learn some new skills. Workshops are usually a limited amount of time such as a day or weekend. Participants can gain information that is helpful to them. The workshop or webinar can plant the seeds of change or information that is exciting to the participant.
Group therapy can initially be intimidating, however, when people make an effort to experience group, they find it a powerful modality for change.
One of the benefits of groups is the recognition that others struggle with similar issues. This can be very relieving and validating.
Moreover, a group has about 8-10 people in it and the experiences of other people with the facilitation of the therapist can make for a powerful modality for change.
Group therapy can also operate as a laboratory of the outside world. If members disagree or have a problem, it can be worked out between people facilitated by the therapist. This can help when similar contact occurs within the outside world. People who have dealt with this type of conflict in a safe setting can better cope with conflict in their daily lives
