MORNING MINDFULNESS MEDITATION – PARENT CLASS

Leah Katz, Ph.D.
4 Tuesday Sessions, 9:00am – 10:00am
January 14 – February 4, 2020*

This morning mindfulness group is designed for parents/caregivers of school-aged children who want to learn grounding techniques to help jump start a calm and centered day. Often times the mornings are a flurry of stress and rushing. Setting aside some time to practice mindfulness may prove useful to manage the morning stresses as well as settle in to the rest of day.

Our psychologist, Leah Katz, Ph.D., will lead you in a one-hour guided mindfulness/meditation session to help you mentally reset to baseline after challenging mornings. The goal of this group is to empower you to take control of your own mental state so that you are better equipped to address your child’s challenging behaviors.This group is appropriate for beginners as well as people with experience meditating.

Does your child struggle to get work done well and on time? Then this is the class for you. The Seeing My Time program was developed by Marydee Sklar and focuses on making time tangible. This is a hands-on class for middle and high school students who struggle with time management, work initiation/completion, organization, and overall ability to get work done before play. We will discuss brain development, the connection between the brain and behavior, as well as offer easy-to-use tools to increase executive functioning skills. This is a seven-week class that builds upon itself. Parents and students participate together. One parent must attend every session.
