The Adaptive Parenting Workshop is a one day Workshop for parents who have experienced separation from their children. The Workshop is conducted prior to the Family Intensive Reunification Workshop and provides parents with a skill set to approach their children from a place of compassion.
Hallmarks of the Workshop are strategies to limit defensiveness, a focus on mindfulness, and authentic and thoughtful responses to a wide range of behaviors that their children may exhibit in the Workshop.
This Workshop serves to reduce the anxiety, fear, and anticipation of the unknown experience of approaching their children for the first time in months or years post-separation. The Workshop assists the parent in managing expectation of the upcoming Stable Paths Family Intensive Reunification Workshop. This Workshop is appropriate for all parents who will participate in the Stable Paths Family Intensive Reunification Workshop.
